How the Center Helps Providers

 The Center is designed to help address the many barriers related to providing evidence-based behavioral health services to children, youth, and families in our state.  The Center works to identify and share information on evidence-based interventions, which can be challenging, especially as the number and type of evidence-based interventions grows. The Center is also working to collect information on what kinds of evidence-based interventions are currently being used to help children, youth, and families in South Carolina.
