The Children's System Advisory Council (CSAC) serves as an advisory council for OHA's Child and Family Behavioral Health programs. Before Senate Bill 1 (2019) established the Governor-appointed System of Care Advisory Council, CSAC provided oversight of children's mental health system planning, coordination, policy development, fiscal development, and evaluation of service delivery/functioning.
Council membership includes family members, youth and young adults, representatives from child welfare, intellectual/developmental disabilities, juvenile justice, education, coordinated care organizations, behavioral health providers and OHA.
The Council is facilitated by elected CSAC co-chairs. Professionals are appointed from their respective systems and youth and family members apply as interested.
