The CMHP (Children’s Mental Health Program) serves as the statewide access site for youth and families to apply for wraparound services, known as CMHW (Children’s Mental Health Wraparound) through the Department of Mental Health & Addiction. Our Family Liaison’s will assist youth & families with the application process for these intensive mental health services, which includes an initial assessment process to collaborate with families in identifying any ongoing need for supports. For all youth & families who may not qualify for the wraparound services through DMHA, Child Advocates will assist in making referrals for these individuals within their community in an effort to support their social, emotional and behavioral well-being. Additionally, Child Advocates will provide support through the Educational Liaison program for those youth who have identified intensive educational related needs and do not qualify for the wraparound services through DMHA.
One priority for Child Advocates within the new Children’s Mental Health Program, is to intentionally focus efforts on identifying gaps in services for those children who may not have regular access to mental & emotional health care. Child Advocates will do this by identifying youth within the black, brown and LGBTQ+ communities to increase efforts in coordinating supportive services to address their needs.
