The Comprehensive Community Mental Health Services for Children and Their Families Program, also known as the Children’s Mental Health Initiative (CMHI) was created to promote the coordination of the multiple and often fragmented systems that serve children and youth from birth to age 21 diagnosed with a serious emotional disturbance and their families. This report presents program evaluation findings on the program for the year 2011 that supports systems of care for community-based mental health services for children, youth and their families.
The report shows that there were reductions in suicide ideation and attempts among youth after entering the program.
