Systems of Care

This conference brings together Pennsylvania’s Child and Adolescent Service System Program (CASSP) and System of Care (SOC) partners providing behavioral health. Conferences provide an excellent opportunity for providers, county administrators, youth, family members, practitioners and educators to learn about changing trends, promising and best practices, resources and various system of care activities across Pennsylvania. The conference also adds a national perspective on a variety of issues including government, family peer, early childhood, youth leadership and school-based mental health.
