Systems of Care is not a program — it is a philosophy of how care should be delivered.  Systems of Care is an approach to services that recognizes the importance of family, school and community, and seeks to promote the full potential of every child and youth by addressing their physical, emotional, intellectual, cultural and social needs.  

 

 

System of Care

A system of care is the practice of planning and delivering mental health services to families and youth. This process is family and youth driven that connections them to formal and informal services and supports, structured into a coordinated network, in order to meet the families multiple and changing needs.
