Mental Health Services Program for Youth

The Foundation's Mental Health Services Program for Youth was designed to improve mental health services for seriously mentally ill children and youth through the development of comprehensive service systems under the aegis of multi-agency, state-community partnerships that can make major changes in financing, organization, and delivery of services.Earlier, a Foundation grant was made to the State of California, Health and Welfare Agency, Department of Mental Health under the Mental Health Services Program For Youth. A transfer of the funds for this grant to the San Francisco Division of Mental Health, has been made. The State of California requested the transfer of this grant because it is consistent with their policy direction to provide counties with more responsibility. The project will continue the objective of demonstrating that, through a collaborative effort between states and local communities, services for seriously mentally ill youth can be organized and delivered more effectively.
