Systems of Care Special Program Clinical Projects

The Special Program Clinical Projects, funded by SAMHSA’s Center for Mental Health Services, were created to give AACAP residents the opportunity to be part of a learning community focused on enhancing the understanding of the treatment of children and adolescents with mental disorders using the core values and guiding principles of the system of care philosophy. Every year, a representative group of the Systems of Care Committee selects 15 residents to mentor and collaborate on the development of a poster of a clinical concept within systems of care to present during the Systems of Care Special Program in October.
