About The Illinois Children’s Mental Health Partnership

In 2003, the Children’s Mental Health Act was passed, creating the Illinois Children’s Mental Health Partnership, a statewide public/private partnership, to develop a plan to build a comprehensive and coordinated mental health system to better address the needs of Illinois children, adolescents, and their families. By statute, ICMHP is comprised of each child-serving state agency, 25 experts representing a broad range of experiences (such as community mental health, children and family advocates, early childhood, education, health, substance abuse, violence prevention, and juvenile justice), and eight members of the General Assembly.
