Synopsis: Child-serving agencies (e.g., child welfare and juvenile justice) have unique mandates and serve distinct populations. Understanding the effectiveness of systems of care for these agencies is important to improving the level of care provided to youth with serious emotional disorders. It is also necessary to identify when youth engaged in these systems should be enrolled in a system of care. This study examined the effectiveness of two different levels (i.e., early intervention and intensive) of a system of care and found that by serving youth before they require out-of-home services, substantial cost savings can be realized while producing quality outcomes.
