(This amendment provides $14.4 million from the general fund in fiscal year 2016 to create comprehensive crisis response service systems (CRSS) for youth in 10 localities across the state. The funding will be allocated to the regions and dispersed to individual Community Services Boards (CSBs) or groups of CSBs that will be charged with developing and managing the crisis response programs in their communities based on evidence-based practices. The purpose of this funding is to allow families access to essential crisis response services for their children/adolescents when needed. The majority of the children/adolescents will be served in their home/community environment and will be diverted from more expensive/restrictive inpatient psychiatric and juvenile justice settings.)
