The SOC Partnership Needs Provider Input
April 12, 2012

The Pennsylvania System of Care (SOC) Partnership is a federally-funded project operated through the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS). The goal of the partnership is to improve systems by using a structured youth- and family-driven approach. The primary service population is youth ages 8 – 18 who have complex behavioral health challenges, involvement in the child welfare and/or juvenile justice systems and are in or at risk of out-of-home placement. The partnership was awarded a one-year grant allowing the state to strategically plan for statewide expansion of the System of Care.

PCPA has been asked to support the planning grant initiative by asking members and the broader community to complete a brief system analysis and needs survey. The information shared will help design a statewide plan for how Pennsylvania systems work with youth and families.

Provider agencies and staff are encouraged to participate in this important planning initiative by completing this survey. PCPA has not been informed about a survey deadline but requests completion of the survey as soon as possible. The survey may be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PA_System_of_Care_Expansion_Planning_Survey_2012.
