Systems of Care Special Program Clinical Poster Projects

The "Systems of Care Special Program Clinical Project" gives AACAP residents the opportunity to be part of a learning community focused on enhancing the understanding and treatment of children and adolescents with mental disorders. Every year a representative group of the Community Based Systems of Care Committee selects residents to mentor and collaborate with in the development of a clinical poster encompassing the principles of the system of care philosophy. This initiative was made possible through funding by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services. Below is a list of previous participants:
