Youth Foster Care

Continuum of Care

Behavioral Health has a close partnership with Department of Employment and Social Services (DESS) to ensure that all foster youth are provided specialty mental health services (SMHS) as mandated by the Continuum of Care Reform (CCR). The most vital function of this partnership is the sharing of information regarding foster youth who need to be referred for SMHS as well as foster youth who are currently enrolled in services at DBH. Behavioral Health’s commitment to serving all foster youth residing in Butte County is evidenced by the creation of a position dedicated to the oversight of compliance to the CCR guidelines. This oversight includes close tracking of referrals, timeliness to services, child and family team meeting attendance, and progress report completion as defined within the Pathways to Mental Health Services Core Practice Model. Lastly, DBH is redrafting internal CCR Policy to ensure it aligns with the requirements within the newly-updated Medi-Cal Manual and to keep clinicians, contractor providers and DESS social workers apprised of regulation changes.
