Connecting Kids & Families with Behavioral Health Care


Kids and families deserve access to comprehensive behavioral health care that is timely, effective, and offered in convenient locations. The Alliance is committed to improving this experience for families, which is why we launched the Connecting Kids with Care (CKC) project in 2020. 


Our goals include:


  1. Telehealth: We are enhancing the ability of community behavioral health providers to deliver behavioral health care through telehealth means.  Providers are being equipped with telehealth best practice training, access to technology solutions, and mini grants to take their programs to scale. 

  2. Same Day Access: We are training behavioral health providers to establish capability to serve patients who need initial mental health assessments during the same day they need the service, without appointments.

  3. Hospital Follow-Up Care: We are establishing a referral platform to connect children’s hospitals with community-based providers to provide follow-up care to children discharged from psychiatric hospitalization.
