To better connect families in Winnebago and Boone counties to high-quality behavioral health resources based on their individual needs, the Rosecrance Foundation is proud to accept a $1 million grant from the CVS Health Foundation to support youth mental health.
The CVS Health Foundation awarded the Rosecrance Foundation $1 million over five years to support their Coming Together: A System of Care of Adolescents and Young Adults project in the Boone and Winnebago Counties in Illinois. The project is a part of the Youth Mental Health System of Care Coalition and aims to increase the recruiting and training of new partners at non-clinical sites to conduct screenings and utilize their new, web-based Integrated Referral and Intake System.
This new system enables closed-loop referral to evidence-based treatment and wrap-around services. Through this project, the coalition will now serve even more children and families with the goal of providing high-quality, personalized mental health care.
“The Rosecrance Foundation is grateful to The CVS Health Foundation for this generous grant award,” said Sally Draper, executive director at The Rosecrance Foundation. “With these funds and by engaging with our coalition partners, we will ensure access to quality, evidence-based care by proactively identifying and screening the needs of high-risk young people so they can be linked to providers, including new, non-traditional therapeutic services.”
