About the Coordinated Children’s Service Initiative (CCSI)
The purpose of the Coordinated Children’s Service Initiative (CCSI) is to advance the development of a system of care for children and youth with mental health challenges in New York City. A system of care is defined as a comprehensive spectrum of mental health and other necessary services which are organized into a coordinated network to meet the multiple and changing needs of children and adolescents with serious emotional, social and behavioral challenges and their families. (Stroul and Friedman, 1986, 1996)
