Mental health. Changes the name of the division of mental health to the division of mental health and addiction. Amends the definition of "managed care provider" to include: (1) organizations that provide children's mental health services; and (2) organizations that are exempt from federal income taxation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (instead of nonprofit corporations incorporated in another state). Requires the division of mental health to establish standards for each element of the continuum of care for community mental health centers and managed care providers before July 1, 2003. Except for a center that meets certain requirements, prohibits the division of mental health from entering into a contract for the provision of services with a new managed care provider or community mental health center that is not currently providing service until July 1, 2003.
