Synopsis: Approximately 20% of children have a diagnosable mental health condition. Left untreated, children's emotional, behavioral problems and associated impairments are likely to lower their quality of life and reduce their opportunities. The burden to society is high in both human and fiscal terms. Early intervention and treatment leads to improved outcomes. In response to the need, a state funded childrenÕs medical agency embarked on a prevention intervention program by incorporating behavioral health overlay services in a medical home model. The impact of this program leads to future policy considerations.
