Provider Input Needed!
Posted on September 20, 2018
Maine’s Office of Child and Family Services is conducting an independent assessment of Children’s Behavioral Health Services
- Maine has hired Public Consulting Group (PCG) to conduct the assessment.
- The assessment will look to identify strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in Maine’s existing service options for children and families. This includes, but is not limited to: home and community services; crisis services; emergency services; hospital-based services; residential services; and respite.
- The assessment will include gathering information and researching best practices nationwide to develop solutions that address identified problem areas.
- Short and long term recommendations will be provided to address problems within the system.
PCG is seeking to get direct input from youth and families, as well as from providers, regarding Children’s Behavioral Health Services within the next few weeks. Several “Town Hall” meetings will also be held throughout Maine so that PCG can provide information about their work and gather more information from stakeholders. The Alliance will post these dates when dates are confirmed.
If you have not heard from PCG but would like to reach out directly with your thoughts or ideas, including recommendations, on how to make the system better, contact Susan Foosness, Project Manager, email@example.com.
