San Francisco, California

Through the Policy Academy mechanism, core teams from participating states will convene to learn about critical issues associated with diverting youth with behavioral health disorders. States will draft a strategic plan to facilitate the implementation of innovative strategies to improve outcomes for youth with behavioral health disorders.
The meeting agenda will:
- Include a review of current research, knowledge, and proven models of diversion programs and processes, with an emphasis on those targeting youth with behavioral health needs.
- Maximize the information provided to participating states, while allowing sufficient time for teams to develop a front-end diversion implementation strategy and formulate action steps.
