PROGRAM DIRECTOR'S REPORT
The December 2016 statistical reports for mental health, AODA, and Birth to Three services were reviewed. A question was raised about children and Lincoln Hills. DSS is responsible for placing children. It was noted that the number of children placed has decreased significantly over the years. This is attributed to the success of the PACE program. There also was discussion on autism treatment services. Geri clarified that eventually the autism piece will not be on the stat report, as we no longer authorize those services. Autism is now an MA card service, so families can go directly to the providers. We still work with children diagnosed with autism for providing other services, such as respite or recreational therapy.
Motion by M.J. Nicholson, second by S. Holstein and carried, to approve the program director’s report.
MENTAL HEALTH/AODA COMMITTEE REPORT
Mary Jean reviewed the 1/23/17 meeting. There was a representative from each of the agencies present at the meeting. Three new DCP staff members were introduced, and AODA Supervisor Lynn Klapperich gave a presentation on mindfulness and evidence-based approaches to treatment. It was also noted that Les Meier is the new director for Blandine House.
Motion by M.J. Nicholson, second by D. Will and carried, to approve the minutes from the 1/23/17 MH/AODA Committee meeting as written.
The DCP voucher report for invoices entered 12/21/16 through 1/20/17 was reviewed. Grand total for these invoices is $94,308.47. There were two interoffice invoices for December fuel and vehicle maintenance for a total of $1,299.06. A question was raised about a voucher to Marian College. The Dept. of Community Programs provides tuition reimbursement for staff attending Marian, provided that they stay in our employment for two years.
Motion by D. Will, second by L. Aldrich and carried, to note that the voucher report and interoffice invoices were reviewed and accepted as written.
