Hosp Community Psychiatry. 1976 Jun;27(6):404-7.

A model for interagency cooperation in the provision of mental health services to youths.


In 1971 the Chedoke-McMaster center initiated an assessment and placement program for emotionally disturbed preadolescents in the Hamilton, Ontario, area. That project was used as the springboard for a cooperative venture with other health and social service agencies dealing with children. At the heart of the collaborative project is a multidisciplinary team, composed of representatives from the various participating agencies, that is responsible for all clinical decision-making regarding the need for impatient assessment and placement in residential treatment programs. The team also participates in the planning for discharge and aftercare. The other two components of the project are a short-term inpatient cottage assessment unit and several long-term residential treatment programs.
