Child Behavioral Health Programs The Child Behavioral Health Team supports the child mental health system using a System of Care approach to ensure the service system is driven by the needs and preferences of the child and family, using a strengths-based perspective. The team works with family organizations, child-serving agencies, and the Standard & Tailored Plans to understand and address gaps in services through pilot projects, policy changes, and workforce development initiatives. The Child Behavioral Health Team applies the tools, resources, and vision of the Division of Child and Family Well-Being to address the behavioral health needs of children and families in North Carolina. The Child Behavioral Health team will include school mental health programs, System of Care, the pediatric mental health care access program (NC Psychiatric Access Line), evidence-based programs for children and youth, and the Department’s Rapid Response Team. Child and Youth Programs The division’s Children and Youth programs help all North Carolina children to grow, develop and be healthy. We do this through health promotion, prevention, early identification, treatment, and intervention for children. Programs and services are offered within family-centered, community-based systems of care including schools.
