Partnering with Local Mental Health Providers to Support Foster Youth in College

The new Partnering with Local Mental Health Providers to Support Foster Youth in College toolkit documents efforts to link Medi-Cal-eligible foster youth and other students from traditionally underserved groups to mental health services in the community, leverage existing funding, and develop systems to co-locate services on campus. California Community College support program staff, campus health center or mental health staff, county mental health agencies, and local providers can replicate these practices to remove barriers and connect students with Medi-Cal or no insurance to mental health services.

In this webinar, the California Community College Chancellor’s Office, John Burton Advocates for Youth, and the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health provide an overview of the toolkit framework.
