Synopsis: The Comprehensive Community Mental Health Services for Children and Their Families Program of the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) has provided funding to communities since 1993 to develop community-based systems of care for children with serious emotional disorders and their families. A key issue is the ability to sustain the infrastructure and services over time. The sustainability study of the national evaluation of the program is designed to assess communities post-funding to determine the extent to which systems have been sustained, the factors that have affected maintenance, and the effectiveness of various strategies used to sustain systems of care over time. The study involves a Web survey, and follow-up telephone interviews with a subset of respondents, in 47 sites. The results will be useful to federal and state policymakers and to local communities to promote the sustainability of systems of care.
