Hennepin County Children's Mental Health Collaborative
In 2007, the Hennepin County Children’s Mental Health Collaborative (HCCMHC) issued five Solicitations of Interest that were developed to address key concerns regarding the existing children’s mental health system. The SOIs focused on juvenile justice, uninsured/underinsured youth, primary care, school-based mental health services, and, later, parent involvement and culturally-responsive trainings. Evaluation reports present data collected by the projects, including characteristics of youth served, changes in outcomes, and lessons learned. A 2008 report explored the Collaborative’s operations and functioning from the perspective of its key stakeholders; and a 2010 report assessed the quality of the Hennepin County mental health system for children and the Collaborative’s readiness for system of care funding.
