Community Ownership of the Be Well Movement
Be Well provides many opportunities for transforming the mental health system in Orange County. One of those opportunities is bridging the gap between broad based early childhood developmental screenings, and more limited mental health screenings, with the clinical component of early childhood mental health (ECMH). See ECMH Screening and Clinical Connection.
Child Welfare System Reform
Civic Engagement and MHSA Reform
The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) provides funding to pay for mental health services in Orange County critical to the needs of children who have experienced traumatic stress. Children's Cause Orange County has joined with other organizations advocating for a more responsive MHSA funding structure to better address gaps in the current mental health system. This increased flexibility in responding to community needs will assist those in our communities who are the most at-risk for not receiving adequate mental health supports.
