Synopsis: Attendant Care (AC) services provided to youth who experience severe emotional disturbances are individualized support provided in the least restrictive community settings. AC has been identified as a valuable piece of the system of care in Kansas and elsewhere. Service utilization continues to dramatically increase, yet very little knowledge about AC is available in the literature. This is the first known study of mental health AC evaluating the standards of AC practices in the state of Kansas, stakeholders' perspective on the usefulness of AC, and the policies and practices that support integration of AC into the system of care.
