Synopsis: Outcomes are reported for 320 children with serious emotional disturbance enrolled in a Center for Mental Health Services system of care site. Three treatment groups were observed: wraparound-only, MST-only, and wraparound + MST. Both clinical and functional outcomes were assessed every six months up to 18 months past enrollment. Results: On average, all three groups improved modestly over time, but changes were largely nonsignificant. At 18 months, the MST-only group showed statistically significant improvement on the CBCL. No significant findings were observed for any group on 18-month CAFAS scores. Conclusions: System-level interventions may be insufficient for statistically significant improvement in this population. Targeted, evidence-based treatment may be necessary.
