The Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental & Intellectual Disabilities and Eastern Kentucky University invite you to attend the 2020 System of Care Academy.  This annual event brings together approximately 500 participants from across the system of care: primary care providers, clinicians, prevention specialists, educators, child care providers, Family Resource and Youth Services Centers staff, juvenile justice staff, community-based services staff, public health staff, families, youth, and interested community members.  Qualified American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters will be available throughout the Academy. Continuing education hours, nursing contact hours, and other professional credit hours for attendees will be available.

System of Care (SOC) is defined as "a spectrum of effective, community- based services and supports for children and youth with or at risk for behavioral health or other challenges and their families, that is organized into a coordinated network, builds meaningful partnerships with families and youth, and addresses their cultural and linguistic needs, in order to help them to function better at home, in school, in the community, and throughout life."

The Core Values support all SOC efforts in being youth- and family-driven; community-based; culturally- and linguisticallyappropriate; trauma-informed; and recovery-oriented.

The Guiding Principles of the SOC support children, youth, and families in having access to: 

    •  A comprehensive array of effective, community-based services and supports.

    • ​ A service planning process that is strength-based and individualized.

    • ​ Evidence-informed and promising practices.

    • ​ Services and supports that are delivered in the least restrictive, most normative environments possible.

    • ​ Partnerships with families and youth.

    • ​ Effective care management supports.

    • ​ Developmentally appropriate services.

    • ​ A continuum of behavioral health promotion, prevention, early identification, intervention, and recovery services and supports.

    • ​ A system that supports provider accountability and quality improvement tracking.

    • ​ Protection of their rights.

    • ​ Services and supports that are provided without discrimination.
