ACHIEVE – System of Care High Fidelity Wraparound is a care management program for Severely Emotionally Disturbed (SED) children aged twelve to twenty-one years of age. Families in this program participate in an evidence-based model of care coordination called High Fidelity Wraparound. Care Managers receive specialized training and supervision by the New York State Office of Mental Health Staff. This program is part of New York State’s System of Care SAMHSA Grant. ACHIEVE – System of Care High Fidelity Wraparound is part of Health Homes Serving Children and provides services to children with and without Medicaid who score a high acuity on the CANS assessment.
Services are individualized, community-based care coordination to children and their families to improve the family’s ability to keep the child at home and out of residential care. Services focus on reducing emergency room visits and inpatient hospitalizations. Specially trained Care Managers experienced in working with children who have serious emotional/behavioral issues meet regularly with children and families in their homes. Staff collaborates with parents and community service providers using a strength-based model that identifies a care team for each family, and advocates for needed and appropriate services to promote the successful care of children within their homes and communities. Care Managers provide 24-hour telephonic crisis intervention services and arrange for therapeutic, educational, recreational, respite and family support services.
