Child Advocates is honored to announce that we launched a new program, in May of 2022, as the single point of entry for youth and families who wish to explore eligibility for certain state-funded home and community-based mental health services.
Indiana’s Division of Mental Health and Addiction (DMHA) chose Child Advocates at the beginning of 2022, as its first, single statewide access site for DMHA’s High Fidelity Wraparound program, called Child Mental Health Wraparound (CMHW). The program offers support and services to Hoosier children and youth who face serious mental health or behavioral challenges.
For the first time, families can call just one phone number—211—and ask to be connected to the state’s wraparound program for children. This streamlines and starts the process of determining whether their child is eligible for the Child Mental Health Wraparound program. If they are eligible and interested, Child Advocates’ family liaisons will help them apply for CMHW.
If they are not eligible, our family liaisons will share other resources or information where families, who are interested, may find help.
