Our activities are intended to address the needs of children and families who experience multiple life challenges, increase collaboration among service providers, and involve other community resources who have not typically been engaged in coordinated services to this population. We intend to gain insights from families with complex needs by surveying this population. Utilizing the strong network of partnerships already in place to help us connect with this population, key questions will be posed. We will also elicit input from our Parent Advisory Committee, which is comprised of parents with children that have mental health issues and other complex needs. Finally, service providers will be surveyed and their insights will be captured at the regional meetings. The perceptions gathered from families and service providers will help us assess the barriers that impact services and set the stage for looking at ways to have an impact.
