The Tama County Board of Supervisors on Monday, July 21, approved the second amended and restated agreement for the Case Management Mental Health and Disabilities Services Board of Directors (CMMHDS).

Due to recent changes to state laws generally effecting the provision of mental health services in Iowa and specifically affecting the provision of case management services in Iowa, the CMMHDS followed the procedure to amend and restate the agreement.

Tama County Case Management Services was initially created through participating public and private agencies as a public body in 1991. The agreement was amended and restated in 1999.
