Synopsis: Implementing best practice interventions consistent with the Child and Adolescent Service System (CASSP) principles produced an effective consultation model for youth with serious mental health problems on the island of Maui, Hawaii. Applying strength-based and child and family centered systemic and structural theory and techniques demonstrated positive clinical outcomes and financial efficiencies. Youth served through MauiÕs public sector behavioral health managed care organization experienced a drop in out-of-home placements and an increase in intensive in-home treatments while cost-quality indicators were among the best in the delivery system.
