SOC06 - $16.00
By Sheila Pires, 2002
This primer is a fundamental technical assistance tool for state and local stakeholders engaged in developing systems of care for children with behavioral health disorders and their families. It describes over 30 critical systems of care functions that require structure, such as governance, care management, financing and quality improvement, and examines the pros and cons of different structural approaches. The Primer also focuses on essential components of the system-building process, such as family and youth partnerships, cultural competence, strategic planning and leadership. It incorporates examples from systems of care around the country and useful resources materials.
