$11.8 Million Grant to Improve Children’s Mental Health Services 

The DOH Child and Adolescent Mental Health Division (CAMHD) has been awarded a competitive $11.8 million system of care expansion grant funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The four-year grant will begin funding services in August 2020.

 

The grant will focus on enhancing services for approximately 2,400 youth (ages 3-21) with serious emotional disturbance per year statewide. “Now more than ever, it is important for us to work collaboratively with our child-serving partners to protect and improve children’s mental health,” said CAMHD Acting Administrator, Dr. Scott Shimabukuro. “We know that the COVID-19 pandemic and other societal stressors will have lasting impacts on the wellness of our children and families. These funds offer the opportunity to use cutting-edge strategies to address this growing crisis in our state.” For more information on CAMHD, visit health.hawaii.gov/camhd
