Georgia Center of Excellence for Children’s Behavioral Health

The Georgia Center of Excellence in Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health (COE) is partnering with the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) to provide fidelity monitoring, evaluation, research, training, and technical assistance for the child and adolescent behavioral health System of Care in Georgia. The project builds on efforts of the Community Based Alternatives for Youth (CBAY) project to implement a System of Care that is individualized, comprehensive, coordinated, culturally competent, and driven by child and family needs. The implementation of COE activities is informed by best practices, Georgia System of Care data, local and state level policy, diverse stakeholder experience, and previous implementation lessons.

COE Online is a resource for providers, family support organizations, and the community at large. This site includes resources and training information and will include technical assistance tools, fidelity monitoring reporting and more in the future. Visit gacoeonline today!

The COE is housed within the Georgia Health Policy Center at Georgia State University. Partners include faculty and staff from the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies’ Center for Collaborative Social Work in the School of Social Work. This project is funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
