December 23, 2021 We are excited to share a new report: A Path Forward – Transforming the Public Behavioral Health System for Children, Youth, and their Families in the District of Columbia. This report makes recommendations for transforming the District’s public behavioral health system for children into a system that provides adequate, high-quality services, and also prioritizes family-centered care, cultural humility, racial equity, and trauma-informed care throughout the continuum of care for children in the District. A Path Forward was co-published by a variety of organizations and offers actionable recommendations informed by best practices across the country, feedback and input from expert stakeholders across the District, and focus groups conducted with District youth and caregivers.
