Synopsis: In an effort to decrease out of home placements and increase access to care, the Hamilton County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board contracted with two local agencies in Hamilton County and developed The Family Peer Support Program (FPS). This school-based program targets families of youth with mental health needs in Hamilton County. Data show the need for and the potential of the program as only approximately 3% of the parents in the program reported that they were dealing with child relinquishment issues as a result of their inability to access services for their child’s behavioral health needs. The majority of parents reported increased access and awareness of behavioral health services.
