|About||We help Montgomery County Ohio children that have complex mental health diagnoses and juvenile justice.|
We are here to help Montgomery County, Ohio children who have complex mental health diagnoses and juvenile justice involvement.
Our Goal is to assist children to reach their full potential by improving access to care.
• We create a single point of contact for the family's and child to help coordinate care across all child-serving entities.
• We believe every child has unique needs, so each program is specially designed to match the child and the family’s needs.
• We believe that this wrap-around model helps kids find the right path to meet their potential and fulfill their greatness!
Children Matter! Montgomery County is a high fidelity service offered to youth and families in Montgomery County, OH. Children Matter!
Children Matter! Montgomery County serves children ages 5-14 who have complex mental health diagnoses and juvenile justice involvement. This initiative is designed to serve between 200-225 children throughout the lifetime of the project by creating a single point of contact for coordinating care across all child-serving entities. The ultimate goal is to avoid service duplications while improving health outcomes. Specific strategies include care coordination through the creation of Child Advocate positions and Tiered Development Teams, which involve multi-system representatives that create Individualized Case Plans. Services are culturally and linguistically competent and community-based, and care coordination is enhanced through electronic records sharing. Other services include prevention programming, trauma-informed competency training, and family engagement and social marketing activities.
The entire project is supported through a financing plan that uses a pooled or “blended” payment model via multiple child-serving organizations.
Background: The ADAMHS Board for Montgomery County received $3 million System of Care Expansion Implementation Cooperative Agreement from SAMHSA to implement the Children Matter! Montgomery County (CMMC) project.
