Notes

  • In FY01, funding for children and adolescents awaiting discharge to appropriate placements ("stuck kids") was in the Office of Medicaid, and then in FY02 was a separate line item in the Dept. of Mental Health. In FY03, this funding was incorporated into the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services line item in the Dept. of Mental Health.
  • Use caution comparing funding for this line item FY09-FY10. In FY10, funding for information technology was taken out of this line item and shifted to a centralized information technology account. The exact amount of this accounting change is not available.

Funding from this line item supports a variety of services for children and adolescents with severe emotional disturbance and serious mental illness. Services are provided in residential facilities and through other community-based programs, and may be coordinated with services provided by other state agencies. This line item also funds the Massachusetts Child Psychiatry Access Project.

The Department of Mental Health (DMH) provides services to eligible children and adolescents through age 19, and to the families of these children. Services are provided directly by DMH or by private providers under contract to the state, and include clinical treatment in residential programs, case management, and flexible community supports, such as help with managing psychiatric symptoms, peer support programs, skills training, and management of medical conditions. DMH also operates a mobile crisis intervention program in the Southeast Area. DMH also funds and helps coordinate services for children who are clients of other agencies, such as the Department of Children and Families.

The Massachusetts Child Psychiatry Access Project (MCPAP) is funded within this line item. MCPAP is administered by the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership (MBHP), and includes regional teams of mental health clinicians who are available to provide clinical consultation to any pediatrician who has a mental health concern about a patient. With a recent increase in funding, these consultations are now available to pediatricians five days a week. MCPAP has also expanded its telephone consultations to include postpartum depression.
