Wraparound is a coordinated planning process that leads to an individualized care plan and development of a child and family team. It is for youth and families who have tried everything in the past, and have still not met with success. Plans may include a mix of natural supports such as family and friends, as well as formal supports. The Mental Illness and Drug Dependency (MIDD) Action Plan provides funds to support these services.
Any child or youth (up to age 21) experiencing an emotional and/or behavioral disturbance, including substance use or abuse, is eligible for the program if he/she:
- resides in King County
- receives services from two or more of these child serving systems - child welfare, developmental disabilities, juvenile justice, mental health, special education programs, substance abuse
- would benefit from wraparound, and
- agrees, both the youth and family, to participate in the wraparound process.
Also eligible is any child or youth residing in King County (up to age 17.5) who has a severe emotional or behavioral disturbance who has been receiving mental health services appropriate to their needs across multiple life domains and is considering admission to a more restrictive setting such as the Children's Long-term Inpatient Program (CLIP).
