Children’s Behavioral Health

The ECR will ensure an array of services and supports that promote developmental growth and mental wellness across the lifespan. A sub-committee of Coordinators of Disability Services met with the CEO multiple times throughout late 2019 and early 2020 to determine how best to implement the needed changes for the creation of the Children’s Behavioral Health Services system. A survey was developed and sent to a broad scope of providers, educators, public health, juvenile court services, CPPC (Community Partnerships for Protecting Children), and anyone interested in children’s brain health issues. The results from that survey are in the document above. The survey included a question about interest in being on the Children’s Advisory Committee. To see the current committee members as well as agendas and minutes from their meetings, please see the Children's Advisory Committee section on the Advisory Committees page.
