(KTIV) – Two Siouxlanders have been appointed to the 2020 Iowa Children’s Behavior Health System board.
Dan Cox, of Sioux City, and Melanie Cleveringa, of Sioux Center, will be working alongside 10 other board members to coordinate Iowa’s recently-created Children’s Mental Health System.
The goal of the program is to ensure children have access to the mental health services they need.
“I was proud to create a Children’s Behavioral Health System, where the path to healing is clearly marked and parents know where to begin so their child can get help,” said Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds. “The Children’s Mental Health Board will take a leading role in improving the system for generations to come.”
