Central Iowa Community Services (CICS) is seeking volunteers to join our Children’s Advisory Committee. With the passage of HF690, the Mental Health and Disability Service Regions in the state of Iowa have been given the responsibility of developing and administering the Children’s Behavioral Health system on behalf of those children with a Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED) diagnosis.
The purpose of the Advisory Committee is to influence and develop a system of care for Children in the CICS region. The Committee will initially meet monthly, with the intent to move to quarterly meetings.
CICS invites individuals from the following categories to submit their names for consideration: parents or actively involved relative; member from education system; early childhood advocate; child welfare advocate; provider of children’s services; juvenile court; pediatrician; childcare provider; and local law enforcement.
Our goal is to balance membership between the 11 CICS counties (Boone, Franklin, Greene, Hamilton, Hardin, Jasper, Madison, Marshall, Poweshiek, Story, Warren) and the roles to be filled.
Take time to consider this opportunity to become a member of this important organization.
