Collaborating Between Child Welfare and Mental Health

Children involved in the child welfare system may sometimes require clinical care from mental health professionals. The child welfare and mental health professionals working with these children and their families may not always have opportunities to collaborate despite both seeking to improve outcomes. In this podcast, listeners will hear about a joint training and collaborative effort that occurred outside Baltimore, MD, designed for each group of professionals to better understand each other by sharing target outcomes for children and families, developing a common language to care, understanding each systems’ particular needs, and learning how to recognize and assess signs and symptoms of potential mental health disorders.
