A bill is awaiting Governor Lamont's signature that aims to improve the mental health of young people.  Redding Senator Will Haskell says Connecticut required a mental health provider to gain consent from the parent or guardian of a minor receiving outpatient mental health treatment after six sessions.  This measure removes that restriction, allowing minors to receive outpatient mental health treatment indefinitely without requiring parental consent in most circumstances.  SB 2 would also provide annual “mental health days” for students and remove fees that make early childhood education unaffordable for many families.
