System of Care Meetings

What is a system of care?

Systems of care meetings are held quarterly throughout the year, with a face to face meeting in the spring and in the fall. Teens & youth are encouraged to voice their opinions & ideas on the current system of care in Montana.

The goals of the meetings include:

  • Develop policies aimed at eliminating or reducing barriers to the implementation of a system of care;
  • Promote development of a quality array of core services in-state so that SED (serious emotional disturbed) youth can avoid out-of-state placements;
  • Encourage development of the infrastructure of the system of care
