Implementing Connecticut's Behavioral Health Plan for Children

The Connecticut Health Foundation is supporting CHDI to lead implementation of critical components of Connecticut's Behavioral Health Plan for Children. The funding will examine and help align financial support for the delivery of behavioral health services in Connecticut. The grant funding will also help identify, expand, and align behavioral health screening and early identification activities, so children with needs can be identified early and connected to services. Currently, many settings that serve children - such as schools and pediatric primary care offices - do not consistently screen for behavioral health conditions, leading many children to fall through the cracks and miss out on helpful therapeutic services.
