This article is enacted to provide a framework within which the departments and divisions of state government, working collaboratively with the applicable individuals and organizations in the private sector that provide or are in need of behavioral health services, can study the current system of behavioral health services offered within West Virginia, the financing of those services, and proposed changes to both. It is the purpose of the Legislature to encourage the long-term, well-planned development of a comprehensive and cost-effective system of care.
