What is a System of Care?
A system of care is a partnership of child-serving providers, families, youth and community members. This partnership comes together to meet the challenges of children and youth with emotional, behavioral and mental health needs along with the needs of their families. A system of care strives to help children, youth and families function better at home, in school, in the community and throughout life.
