System-level social-emotional health metric: technical assistance

As of January 2022, CCOs have a new incentive measure to support health aspects of kindergarten readiness: system-level social-emotional health. This metric focuses on identifying and connecting young children with social emotional health needs to services. The four components to this measure are:

  1. Social-emotional health reach metric data review and assessment
  2. Asset map of existing social-emotional health services and resources
  3. CCO-led cross-sector community engagement
  4. Action plan to improve social-emotional health service capacity and access
