Action Alert – Contact Your Executive Councilor Today

DRC-NH has joined NAMI New Hampshire, New Futures, New Hampshire Legal Assistance, and Waypoint in expressing serious concerns with the State’s plan to enter into a sole source contract with Wellpath to provide inpatient psychiatric and behavioral health services to children at Hampstead Hospital, some of whom are as young as 5 years old.

  • Wellpath is the subject of multiple complaints of abuse and neglect of the individuals entrusted to them for their care.
  • Wellpath experience and work is overwhelmingly focused on healthcare services for adults in prisons and juvenile detention centers. We do not believe this company is qualified to provide in-patient psychiatric care to children experiencing acute mental health crises.

The proposed state contract with Wellpath is likely to be voted on by the Executive Council at tomorrow’s meeting.
