ICMHP is charged with developing and monitoring a plan to build comprehensive and coordinated mental health services, programs, and supports for Illinois children and their families. The Partnership created its initial plan in 2005, with a brief update to the strategic priorities in 2012. We are excited to announce that for the first time in 15 years, ICMHP and the State of Illinois are embarking on the process to develop a new Children’s Mental Health Plan to improve the overall wellbeing of all Illinois youth and families.
The plan will be developed through four working groups:
These workgroups are charged with creating recommendations to address the unique needs that a child and their family will face at different points of time and across systems on a mental health and wellness continuum. The workgroup processes are led by our Steering Committee, whose role is to help align the recommendations across all four workgroups into one final Children’s Mental Health Plan. More information about our Steering Committee is below.
