Wraparound Shelby is proposed by Shelby County government to create the service delivery infrastructure needed for improved access to mental health services and supports for youth under 18 with SED and their families. The goal is to serve 400 families over the 4-year grant funded period using high fidelity wraparound as the primary intervention. Care coordinators and family support specialists will work in teams to develop individualized service plans and connect families with natural community supports to provide the resources needed for children to thrive in their home, school and community. The purpose of the program is to improve mental health outcomes for the children with SED and their families to be served by supporting implementation, expansion, and integration of the SOC approach. Shelby County has a poverty rate for children under 18 of 30%, with 2/3 on TennCare. There is no local entity providing coordinated planning and continuous leadership to support children’s MH services and Shelby County will work with UTHSC to create this local locus of accountability and coordination for children’s MH services. All project providers are part of the provider network collaborative and services will be accessible county-wide. Wraparound Shelby is based on the foundation established in managing the past SOC program in Shelby County and the BSB-TN Statewide ACEs Initiative grant by UTHSC Center for Health in Justice Involved Youth (Center). Children with SED are at high risk of chronic absence from school, disciplinary actions in school, or entering juvenile justice/child welfare systems indicating a significant need for coordinated MH services for youth exiting the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. The program will include training and technical assistance for the professional community in trauma informed and culturally responsive care and measurable goals include improved school attendance and performance, decreased contact with the juvenile justice system, and parent/caregiver satisfaction with child functioning. Community engagement and participation in the implementation, evaluation and sustainability planning will be included through a community governance structure that is an integral component of the SOC model. In addition to service provider partners, key stakeholder participants include local CMHCs, Shelby County Schools, and Department of Children’s Services. Data collection and reporting will be the responsibility of UTHSC, as well as the general management and oversight of all services provided related to this project. A community advisory board structure will be developed to assure maximum involvement of community stakeholders in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the project. The Center has led many similar collaborative efforts over the past 4 years and maintains the needed community relationships to support success of all these efforts.
