SAMHSA Grant: Oct. 1, 2014-Sept. 29, 2018
In 2014 SCDHHS, with six other child-serving agencies, applied for a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to expand the state's system of care for youth with significant behavioral health challenges. The $2.8 million grant started Oct. 1, 2014, and runs through Sept. 29, 2018.

The grant funds infrastructure for a system of care including: family organization capacity building, residential provider transformation and improving the use of evidence-based practices for behavioral health. Family organization capacity building includes social marketing about awareness of children's mental health, reducing stigma about mental health and monthly webinars about various parts of a system of care. Individual client services are provided by the S.C. Continuum of Care using a high fidelity wraparound approach, an evidence-based practice.
