Exits From Out-of-Home Care and Continuity of Mental Health Service Use

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter shows a high level of continuity in mental health care use over the 36-month NSCAW study period. The pattern of continuity is robust across methods, which confers additional confidence in the finding. This hopeful finding suggests not only that the child welfare system serves as a gateway to the mental health system, but also that the pathway through it to mental health service survives termination of child welfare system involvement.

Keywords: NSCAW; child welfare services; mental health services
