Member Feedback Needed on New ACF Mental Health Evaluation Form

Last week, the Department of Health (DOH) issued a new (long-awaited) mental health evaluation form with a Dear Administrator Letter (DAL). This form is not mandated, but the Department developed it to be compliant with regulatory requirements.

We have heard concerns from members regarding the form and will be meeting with DOH soon to discuss further. To aid us in this discussion, I ask members to provide me with specific concerns and suggestions that we can bring to the Department. Please email me your thoughts as soon as possible.
