Frank Rabbito was selected to lead the Florida Behavioral Health Association’s (FBHA) advocacy efforts on behalf of the Florida Council for Behavioral Health (FCBH) at their October board meeting held in Tallahassee.
Going into the 2022 Florida legislative session, beginning in January, Frank will lead the association’s legislative and advocacy agenda.
The FCBH conducts policy analysis and advocacy related to behavioral health issues, reviews and proposes legislation, guides legislative advocacy initiatives, and supports the work of Florida’s statewide Behavioral Health Association (BHA).
Attending the Board meeting were WestCare Florida Vice Presidents, Danny Blanco, Maureen Dunlevy, and Larry McArthur. The board meeting included a legislative reception held at the FBHA headquarters. Twenty-two members of the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate were also in attendance at the event.
