What is A System of Care?

A spectrum of effective, community-based services and supports for children and youth with or at risk for mental health or other challenges and their families, that is organized into a coordinated network, builds meaningful partnerships with families and youth, and addresses their cultural and linguistic needs, in order to help them to function better at home, in school, in the community, and throughout life.

What will the project do?

The primary goal of The Mosaic Project is to make it easy for families to access activities and services that promote social and emotional wellness. The number of kids who are experiencing emotional or mental health problems is increasing and often, parents do not know where to turn. The Mosaic Project and The Mosaic Helpline will be a "One-Stop" for information and support for ALL families and kids in Union County.

Filling in the pieces of the Mosaic

The Mosaic Project is a unique collaboration of organizations that are concerned about the social and emotional wellness of kids and families in Union County. The Mental Health and Recovery Board received  a federal grant to supplement the resources that were already being allocated for kids and families and to create a new way of engaging people to be well. The Mosaic Project includes a spectrum of supports for children and youth with, or at risk for, mental health or other challenges and their families, that is organized into a coordinated network, builds meaningful partnerships with families and youth, addresses their cultural and linguistic needs in order to help them to function better at home, in school, in the community, and throughout life. Services provided through The Mosaic Project covers the entire Institute of Medicine’s Behavioral Health Continuum of Care and includes a core benefit package for youth. This includes services in prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery supports as well as providing extensive evidence-based programming.
