Collaboration Between DCYF and MH Providers: Strengths, Challenges, and Ethical Decision Making
The NH Division for Children, Youth and Families has partnered with the Dartmouth Trauma Interventions Research Center on two back-to-back federal grants aimed at increasing the availability and quality of evidence-based trauma and mental health screening, assessment, and interventions for youth in the child welfare system. Through these projects DCYF is now screening youth for mental health symptoms, PTSD symptoms and trauma exposure. DCYF will also be screening foster and relative care providers for family functioning, in select cases.
One of the biggest factors in the success of these projects will be improved collaboration between DCYF and their partners in the community. We would like you to join us to talk Comm Collab Mtg Concord Keene LaconiaComm Collab Mtg Concord Keene Laconiaabout what barriers get in the way of communication, what ethical issues impact collaboration and how we can improve the way we work together given the confines of each system.
We want this to be a conversation between direct service providers and DCYF staff in your area. This will be offered in four regions around the state to facilitate specific community based discussions.
**We are in the process of applying for 3 hrs of Ethics CEUs through NH NASW. Please ask if they have been granted.**
