OCMH Accessing Children's Mental Health Services Resource-Content and Design Survey

Project Overview

The Service Access and Family Engagement Committee of the Trauma and Recovery Project (TARP) are focused on creating a tool that can provide parents/caregivers with information on how to first access mental health services for their family and what to expect in those initial stages. There are a number of tools that already exist on this, so we are hoping to combine the best parts of each resource to create an accessible, visual resource that can be utilized for this grant and beyond.
