Children's Behavorial 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 pivot table shown (insert where that is). The survey included a question about interest in being on the Children’s Advisory Committee. Advisory committee members are listed (insert where that is). Two tiers of children’s services will be phased in by 2021.

The current available services are:

  • Assessment and evaluation for eligibility​
  • Outpatient psychotherapeutic treatment​
  • Medication prescription and management​
  • Prevention​
  • Education​
