This  was presented to the Children’s Cabinet 2/26/2018. Kristen Stringfellow was in attendance and should have received a hard copy. I’ve attached a PDF and the document can be accessed on the BHDDH website at the following locations: 


What’s New: or Family/Individual information:

BHDDH is in the process of procuring a new 24/7 support system the “BH Link”. We anticipate that this will go live in May and plan to revise the Guidebook to include information about it. I am collecting other edits in the meantime and welcome any feedback that will enhance/strengthen this resource for our youth and young adults.


Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
