A System of care for children with serious emotional disturbances.
One Community Partnership was a six (6) year project to evaluate and redesign the existing array of children's mental health services in Broward County into a comprehensive, coordinated system of care. Our vision was to develop a system of care driven by family voices that would sustain and support severely emotionally disturbed (SED) children in the least restrictive and most clinically appropriate environment. This initiative served as a pilot project to stimulate system reform initiatives across other social services networks within the County and ultimately across the state.
The mission was "To create and participate in a collaborative planning, funding and service delivery system that is intra-connected, culturally competent, and focused on empowering families to create measurable change in the lives of their children."
The One Community Partnership was initiated and funded through The Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) and Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
