Children's Mental Health


3. Expand Access to Mental Health/Developmental Services for Children Ages 0–5

Grants must be used for programs that expand/increase direct mental health and/or developmental health services to CalOptima members ages 0–5 (children) that support early identification and intervention activities by increasing the number of staff, extending hours/days of operation and providing additional services. For example, programs may include services provided at primary care locations, intensive outpatient treatment, social skills intervention activities, parent-focused interventions, comprehensive provider trainings, and/or provide additional evening/weekend hours. Programs must include outreach and education to promote awareness of and connect CalOptima members to the services being provided. Funds are for non-Medi-Cal contracted services and may not be used as reimbursement for Medi-Cal covered services.
