(This amendment adds $4.8 million each year from the general fund to implement two pilot programs that will expand and strengthen the crisis response continuum initiative funded by the General Assembly in fiscal year 2013 and transform the crisis continuum experience for all involved stakeholders, especially for families and youth. Funding will create a comprehensive crisis response continuum for children and adolescents in two regions or sub-regions, one rural and one urban/suburban. Both pilot projects will include all of the following elements: intensive crisis case management; psychiatry and/or telepsychiatry services; intensive outpatient services with step-down services, during a crisis and following a crisis; mobile response crisis response teams with a capability to provide some crisis services in home, family crisis peer support, and clinical oversight for each crisis. Each pilot project is to be funded at $2,400,000.)
