USF Logic Model Team News for System of Care Communities

4/2011 Update:

Planning for Sustainability: Thinking Beyond Year Six

The Child Mental Health Initiative Announcement states that in years three to six, system of care communities must continue to enhance and maintain their capacity to meet the needs of children and their families. They also must implement a strategic plan for sustaining the system of care beyond the 6-year Federal funding period.

The USF Logic Model team is available to support your team and community through individualized training and technical assistance. In addition, we offer a variety of on-line resources for communities midway through CMHI funding and in the implementation stages of their strategic plan:

  • System Implementation Site-Based Reports are based on findings from RTC Study 2: Case Studies of System Implementation. The reports describe system specific efforts to leverage change in established system of care communities.
  • System Implementation Issue Briefs provide greater understanding of how factors affecting system implementation contribute to the development of local systems of care for children with serious emotional disturbance and their families.
  • Increasing Utilization Strategies for Engaging Culturally/Racially Diverse Children and their Families in Mental Health Services was developed to increase awareness of the impact of culture on the utilization of mental health services and to provide field-based examples of strategies that can increase utilization for culturally/racially diverse children and families.

  • Narrations of exemplary logic models by site directors and others involved in system development demonstrate key components of planning for sustainability.
