Complex Case Planning for Children and Youth Under Age 21

0 1019

The Office of Children Youth and Families has released a bulletin (DHS Bulletin 14-Bul-109 Complex Case Planning) providing guidance to all child-serving state and county agencies, family and youth advocacy organizations, and both physical and behavioral managed care organizations that are involved in case planning for children and youth with complex needs up to age 21.

The Department of Human Services (department) seeks to provide a comprehensive approach to serving children and youth, birth to 21 years of age, through programs that focus on early intervention, long-term prevention, and services that support family stability, safety, community protection, and the child/youth’s healthy development and permanent connections. In order to meet the needs of children, youth, and families with complex challenges, clear structures are necessary at the county, regional, and state levels so that resources, expertise, and collaboration can be maximized.

The bulletin can be accessed at this link and the Complex Case Planning Referral Form can be found here. If you have any further questions, please contact RCPA Children’s Division Director Jim Sharp.
