The bill expands the necessary human referral services authorized

referrals for behavioral health services and other resources in the state for

of whether they receive benefits.

The bill requires the department of human services' office of
behavioral health to contract with the collaborative to hire and train
specialized personnel. The bill also requires the office of behavioral
health to collaborate with the collaborative to engage in targeted
marketing and outreach, and to ensure the marketing and outreach are
targeted to traditionally underserved communities, such as immigrant,
low-income, and communities of color.
The bill also requires the collaborative to coordinate with the
department of labor and employment (department) to target, conduct
outreach, and market to individuals who are unemployed, regardless of
whether they receive benefits, and may need referrals for behavioral
health services and other resources. The department is required to update
its unemployment application web page and specified websites to include
contact information for the collaborative.
The bill makes an appropriation.
