“Katie A” Assessments

Katie A was the name of a plaintiff in a recent civil suit that created large-scale changes in the provision and availability of Intensive Mental Health Services for children in the foster care system, starting in 2013. In partnership with Child Welfare Services, CALM staff provide mental health assessments for children and their parents involved in the Child Welfare System (most commonly, children that have been detained into foster care). The screener’s evaluation subsequently provides recommendations for treatment to assist with the child’s recovery and the family’s success.

CALM prides itself on its commitment to clinical excellence. In addition to the quality of our staff, our very experienced clinical leadership, and our long history of preventing and treating childhood trauma, this commitment is embodied in the training, assessment and evaluation programs we employ in our work. Our clinicians used evidence based treatment, interventions that have been tested and are proven to work.
