background shadows

In collaboration with the Center for Health Care Strategies and Casey Family Programs, the Children’s System of Care (CSOC) and sixteen stakeholders across the state formed a short-term Task Force that will help to define and shape the Division’s behavioral and physical health integration model. The Task Force will meet four times from September through December 2019, reviewing and discussing various materials and initiatives, culminating in a strategic framework to evolve CSOC’s programs and services.

This page will be updated regularly with new information. Please note that until final recommendations are issued, all ideas and suggestions in the meeting summaries are for consideration, only.
