Synopsis: The premise of this study is that collaboration is a key ingredient in developing systems of care to serve children with serious emotional disturbance and their families. The purposes of this study were to understand better how collaboration contributes to effective systems of care, and to inform policymakers about the most effective policy implementation strategies. The study identified facilitating and inhibiting factors in three broad areas (attitudinal, behavioral, and structural/organizational) that impact how policy development and implementation contributes to system of care effectiveness. This presentation will review the study design and methods, findings, and policy recommendations.
