Short Description
Exhibit A – Scope of Services
In 2003, the General Assembly passed P.A. 93-495 the Childrens Mental Health (CMH) Act, which resulted in the development of Childrens Mental Health Partnership (ICMHP). Membership of the ICMHP creates a unique stakeholders group of public and private entities charged with developing and monitoring the implementation of a Plan to include recommendations for the provision of a comprehensive, coordinated mental health system based on prevention, early intervention, and treatment services for children from birth through age 18. In addition, the ICMHP is to submit an annual report to the Governor on the progress of the Plan implementation and recommendations and revisions for the Plan. Historically, the contents of the Plan have focused on publicly funded services and resources available, and the data related to those public funds. With the historical changes that have occurred nationally and specific to Illinois since the passing of P.A. 93-495, the Plan the ICMHP implements needs to expand to truly capture the entire mental health system available to all children, adolescents and their families in Illinois regardless of payer source. This requires the ICMHP to expand its Plan to include private insurance, foundations, and other funding sources that support the implementation of a coordinated comprehensive array of mental health services for children, adolescents, and their families. It will be through the expansion of this work that the ICMHP will support efforts undertaken by Illinois state departments, specifically in alignment with the Governors Cabinet on Children and Youth goals and priorities.
(405 ILCS 49/5)
Sec. 5. Children's Mental Health Plan.
a. The State of Illinois shall develop a Children's Mental Health Plan containing short-term and long-term recommendations to provide comprehensive, coordinated mental health prevention, early intervention, and treatment services for children from birth through age 18. This Plan shall include but not be limited to:
1. Coordinated provider services and interagency referral networks for children from birth through age 18 to maximize resources and minimize duplication of services.
2. Guidelines for incorporating social and emotional development into school learning standards and educational programs, pursuant to Section 15 of this Act.
3. Protocols for implementing screening and assessment of children prior to admission to an inpatient hospital for psychiatric services, pursuant to subsection (a) of Section 5-5.23 of the Illinois Public Aid Code.
4. Recommendations regarding a State budget for children's mental health prevention, early intervention, and treatment across all State agencies.

8. Recommendations for a comprehensive, multi-faceted public awareness campaign to reduce the stigma of mental illness and educate families, the general public, and other key audiences about the benefits of children's social and emotional development, and how to access services.
