Program Factors that Enhance or Deter Innovative Approaches to Improve Child & Adult Mental Health Services Coordination

The goal of the study was to provide information to enhance future innovative efforts to improve child-adult mental health systems coordination. This study examined mental health (MH) programs to identify program-based risk markers for poor child-adult MH program coordination and malleable factors in programs that do and do not have good child-adult coordination. The study used social network analysis, an innovative services research method, to measure child-adult MH service coordination. Risk markers and malleable factors from the perspective of key stakeholders within child and adult MH providers were assessed. The study was conducted in one of the states that received a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Healthy Transitions grant to improve services for transition age youth through improved service provision and infrastructure change
