CCC submitted testimony about the impact the Fiscal Year 2013 Preliminary Budget would have on mental health services for children and their families for a March 19, 2012 City Council Mental Health Committee Hearing on the Fiscal Year 2013 Preliminary Budget.

CCC testified about the devastating impact the cuts proposed in the Preliminary Budget would have on children.
