The Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that children and youth receiving coordinated services in a System of Care (SOC) are less likely to attempt suicide and show dramatic improvements in school performance and daily functioning. Kentucky’s SOC dates back to 1989 when the first IMPACT services were provided to children and youth involved with multiple child-serving entities and who have a severe emotional disability. As a result of the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid provider network expansion, and the passage of behavioral health parity legislation, Kentucky intends to expand and redesign the SOC to respond to needs of children, youth, and their families.
The Kentucky Initiative for Collaborate Change (KICC) invites primary care providers, clinicians, practitioners, educators, child care providers, Family Resource Youth Service Center personnel, juvenile justice staff, families/youth, and community members to attend the 2014 System of Care Academy on June 25-26 at the Marriott Griffin Gate located at 1800 Newtown Pike in Lexington, KY. Participants will have the opportunity to attend Kentucky’s State Interagency Council Meeting, participate in sessions on relevant topics to enhance knowledge, develop skills, and support collaboration to build a stronger System of Care.
Current session topics include:
ü Question, Persuade, Refer
