About the Course:

There is little national information on the policies and procedures used by states to regulate residential treatment facilities for children with mental illness. This course is based on a study whose specific purpose was to identify methods that states use to monitor such residential facilities. Information is included regarding facility characteristics and programs, licensing and oversight procedures, and sources of financing. The information presented is based on the results of a 2003-2004 survey of officials in departments of mental health, social services, health services, and child and family services.

This course is based on the reading-based online article, State Regulation of Residential Facilities for Children With Mental Illness created by Ireys, HT et al.
