The Journey to a System of Care for Children's Mental Health - Take Action
The champions of System of Care have inspired our County to sustain and expand our efforts to continue with our mission to achieve positive change through our newly adopted Welcome Orange Initiative! Welcome Orange takes the philosophy of System of Care to scale for all individuals, adults and children, with complex care needs. Our overall vision is to design the system at every level to be about the needs, hopes, and dreams of the people and families that are needing help with all types of co-occurring complex issues – including health, mental health, trauma, substance abuse, and cognitive conditions, as well as housing, legal, vocational, social and parenting issues and that ALL programs and ALL persons delivering care and support become welcoming, person-centered, resiliency-/recovery, hopeful, strength-based, trauma-informed, culturally fluent, and complexity-capable.
