Grant announcement from SAMHSA
- Statewide Family Network Program
- Application Due Date: Monday, February 2, 2015
- Anticipated Award Amount: Up to $95,000 per year
The Statewide Family Network Program builds on the work of SAMHSA's Center for Mental Health Services which helped to establish a child and family focus in programs serving children and adolescents with mental health challenges around the country. Today, nearly every state has active family organizations dedicated to promoting systems of care that are responsive to the needs of children and adolescents with mental health challenges and their families. Although significant progress has been made, further support will ensure self-sufficient, empowered networks that will effectively participate in State and local mental health services planning and health care reform activities related to improving community-based services for children and adolescents with mental health challenges and their families.
