We are the Statewide Access Site for the Child Mental Health Wraparound (CMHW) program from the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction (DMHA). We are the state’s first single point of entry to help families apply for the wraparound program if they have children with serious mental health or behavioral challenges.
Our Family Liaisons assist youth & families with the wraparound services’ application process which includes an initial assessment process to collaborate with families in identifying any ongoing need for supports.
For all children and families who may not qualify for the wraparound services through DMHA, Child Advocates assists in making referrals to other potential resources within their community in an effort to support their social, emotional, and behavioral well-being.
One priority for Child Advocates, as the Statewide Access Site, is to intentionally increase efforts to identify gaps in services for those children who may not have regular access to mental & emotional health care.
To gather more information about the CMHW program from the Indiana Division of Mental Health & Addiction (DMHA) for which Child Advocates helps families apply, email Sophie Foster, the Director of our Statewide Access Site at firstname.lastname@example.org.
