Synopsis: The assessment of child and family outcomes has become a fundamental component of children's behavioral health service delivery. Despite an increased focus on outcomes, studies of the relationship among outcomes for children with serious emotional and behavioral disabilities are scant. This paper will examine the correlations and predictive properties of child outcomes utilizing data from two behavioral health programs in Kentucky: IMPACT Plus, a statewide Medicaid funded community-based program and the Bridges Project, a school mental health program in Eastern Kentucky. Determining how child outcomes, such as hopefulness and functioning, interact is a critical step in improving services for children and families.
