This orientation covers Katie A./ Intensive Care Coordination, a service provided through WCC, in partnership with Alameda County, to offer intensive care coordination to youth and families with high needs. Intensive Care Coordination services are a result of a lawsuit sought to improve the provision of mental health and supportive services for children and youth in, or at imminent risk of placement in, foster care in California. This training will describe how the county child welfare and mental health systems and service providers can work together to address the mental health needs of children/youth and families in the child welfare system. This training identifies specific required components that support the standards and expectations for practice behaviors by child welfare and mental health staff. It is intended to facilitate a common strategic and practical framework that integrates service planning, delivery, coordination and management among all those involved in working with children involved in multiple service systems.
