SB19-195: Child And Youth Behavioral Health System Enhancements

In May 2019, The Child and Youth Behavioral Health System Enhancements bill was signed into law, addressing behavioral health services and policy coordination for at risk children and youth. The Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) contracted with the Colorado Health Institute to create a menu of screening tools for identifying behavioral health issues among children ages 0 to 26 and in perinatal individuals. This work was mandated by Senate Bill 19-195, which required OBH to "select developmentally appropriate and culturally competent statewide behavioral health standardized screening tools for primary care providers, which may be made available electronically for health care professionals." Due to the novel COVID-19 global pandemic, state revenue shortfalls for the 2020-21 fiscal year eliminated all funding established for Senate Bill 19-195. For more budget information please see the Long Bill and House Bill (HB) 20-1384, which amended the statute to make the work subject to available appropriations (funding).
