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.
Finding Evidence-Based Programs
- The Title IV-E Prevention Services Clearinghouse: The Title IV- E Prevention Services Clearinghouse was established by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to conduct an objective and transparent review of research on programs and services intended to provide enhanced support to children and families and prevent foster care placements.The Prevention Services Clearinghouse, developed in accordance with the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) as codified in Title IV-E of the Social Security Act, rates programs and services as well-supported, supported, promising, or does not currently meet criteria.
California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare: The mission of the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC) is to advance the effective implementation of evidence-based practices for children and families involved with the child welfare system.
- Evidence-Based Interventions for Youth with Behavioral Health and Substance Use Problems: A Report By The South Carolina Center of Excellence in Evidence-Based Intervention: This report is organized into three sections. The first section focuses on intensive family service programs that are designed to prevent out-of-home placement. The second section focuses on evidence-based family interventions that have been demonstrated to impact youth with substance abuse concerns and/or serious behavioral health conditions. The third section provides brief information on evidence-based parenting interventions as well as select interventions for specific youth concerns. These latter interventions may be incorporated into more intensive service delivery models or used as stand-alone interventions in outpatient, home, or community settings.
- Community Crisis Response and Intervention (CCRI) Program: To enhance the SCDMH crisis services array to include a statewide community crisis on-site emergency mental health screening and assessment and referral, as appropriate, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty-five days a year within 60 minutes of contact with the CCRI team to meet the psychiatric needs of the residents of South Carolina. CCRI services will provide adults and children with clinical screening either in person at the location of crisis, in person at a CMHC clinic, or telephonically, in order to de-escalate the crisis and provide linkage to ongoing treatment and other resources.
