Synopsis: We examined data obtained from children and youth with serious emotional disorders in three counties in North Carolina who were receiving services in a system of care context to examine trends in residential placements. A reduction in out of home placements was found and a concomitant increase in home placements over three time periods. In March 2003, 44 percent were in restrictive placements requiring 24-hour staff supervision. The figure decreased to 40 percent in June 2003 and to 37 percent in September 2003. Home placements increased from 41 percent in March to 55 percent in September.
