September 2007Vol. 8, No. 8Service Delivery for Specific Populations

In the summer of 2006, the Georgetown University National Training Institutes presented a series of forums that focused on systems of care service delivery approaches for specific populations. All of the approaches were family driven, youth guided, and individualized, and they all represented evidence-based or promising practices for achieving positive outcomes with children and their families. Summaries of those forums are now available. Populations addressed include:

  • Urban communities
  • Native American communities
  • African-American children and their families
  • Hispanic children and their families
  • Asian and Pacific Islander children and their families
  • Youth in kinship care
  • Youth from military families

Each summary is 6-12 pages and includes information on issues and challenges for each topic, as well as effective strategies for local systems of care. Access the summaries through the website of the National Technical Assistance Center for Children's Mental Health:
