The purpose of this program is to provide resources to improve the mental health outcomes for children and youth, birth through age 21, at risk for or with serious emotional disturbances (SED), and their families. This program supports the implementation, expansion, and integration of the System of Care (SOC) approach by creating sustainable infrastructure and services that are required as part of the Comprehensive Community Mental Health Services for Children and their Families Program (also known as the Children’s Mental Health Initiative or CMHI). With this program, SAMHSA aims to provide mental health services to children and youth, from birth through age 21, at risk for or with serious emotional disturbance (SED) and their families. SAMHSA intends to prepare children and youth at risk for or with SED for successful transition to adulthood and assumption of adult roles and responsibilities.
