The One Community Partnership 3 (OCP3) System of Care grant aims to support Broward County’s two largest child-serving systems (school and child welfare) youth ages 12 to 21 years old. Young person must have been diagnosed with serious emotional disturbance (SED) and with early signs and symptoms of serious mental illness (SMI), including first episode psychosis, along with their families/caregivers.
Throughout the first two One Community Partnership SAMHSA System of Care (SOC) grants (OCP1 from 2002-2008 and OCP2 from 2015-2019), Broward’s service delivery systems achieved sustained infrastructure improvements and service capacity to directly impact outcomes for youth and families.
Key accomplishments include expanded capacity throughout Broward’s behavioral health system for implementation ofboth Wraparound and Transition to Independence Process (TIP) approaches.
The OCP3 initiative will establish both the Wraparound and TIP models within the school and child welfare systems using strength-based, recovery-oriented, and youth and family-focused approaches.
