Children’s Mental Health Assessment reveals gaps and barriers

The Children's System Change Committee, working through the Mid-America Regional Council's Regional Health Care Initiative, commissioned a Children's Behavioral Health Needs Assessment for Greater Kansas City. The assessment was designed to evaluate gaps and barriers to care and develop recommendations to improve access to an integrated and well-coordinated system of quality behavioral health care for children in the metropolitan area. The assessment was funded by HCF and the REACH Healthcare Foundation.
