CHILDREN’S MENTAL HEALTH POLICY AND SYSTEMS
Children’s mental health needs have been chronically underserved both nationally and in Massachusetts. System reform efforts emphasize family involvement, responsiveness to cultural and linguistic differences, inter-agency collaboration, and preventative and community-based services. This course provides an overview of existing and proposed service delivery system, core principles, and effective, evidence-based approaches to meeting children’s mental health needs on a macro level.
