    The Maryland General Assembly included language in the Blueprint for Maryland's Future, Chapter 36 of 2021 (Kirwan education reform bill), to create a new Maryland Consortium on Coordinated Community Supports to help meet student behavioral health needs and other related challenges in a holistic, non-stigmatized manner.  The Maryland Community Health Resources Commission (CHRC) is responsible for providing staff support for the Consortium.  The CHRC will be working closely with the Administration, Maryland State Department of Education, Maryland Department of Health, Maryland General Assembly, and other key stakeholders to help recruit qualified individuals to serve on the Consortium.  The Presiding Officers of the Maryland General Assembly recently appointed The Honorable David D.
