The target population of the children that our funding supports are children up to age 18 with an emotional or behavioral disturbance or who are at risk of suffering an emotional or behavioral disturbance as evidenced by a behavior or condition that affects the child’s ability to function in a primary aspect of daily living including personal relations, living arrangements, work, school, and recreation, and a child who can benefit from (1) multi-agency service coordination and wraparound services; or (2) informal coordination of traditional mental health services provided on a temporary basis. People between the ages of 18 and 21 who meet these criteria may be included in the target population if the person is receiving special education services through the local school district, receive child welfare services, or other services specified by law. The CMHC does not provide direct services to our target population; our partners do.
