Improve the preparedness of youth-serving organizations (schools, foster care systems and juvenile justice programs) to identify risk and provide timely intervention and referrals. Improve the preparedness of clinical service providers (primary and behavioral) to assess, manage, and treat youth at risk for suicide and provide timely intervention and referrals, while adopting an institution-wide cultural adoption of the Zero Suicides in Healthcare model. Improve access to timely care for youth in suicidal crisis. Strengthen care coordination and continuity of care for youth at risk of suicide. Evaluate the impact of the project, disseminate lessons learned, and replicate the model.

Elkhart County Indiana proposes "Elkhart County System of Care Expansion: No Wrong Door," to enhance the capacity of The SOURCE, Elkhart's system of care (SOC). The Project expands SOC reach and depth by strategic infrastructure expansion and development of services to youth 0-17 with significant mental health challenges. Service gaps were identified as: early childhood, youth at risk of SED, and youth with mental health diagnoses at risk of juvenile justice referral. Elkhart is committed to recognizing the scope and power of childhood trauma and to implementing strategies to minimize its affect through The Project's work. The goals of "No Wrong Door" are to: (1) Make changes at our local system level to implement identified access expansion strategies and manage and evaluate the improved system; and (2) Make changes at the service delivery and practice level to provide an array of evidence-informed treatment and supports to improve outcomes for children and families. Specific objectives of The Project are to: (1) Increase access to the SOC which can be entered through any of the system partners' "front doors" to cultivate greater youth and family engagement and involvement in culturally competent services; (2) Increase access to mental wellness and parenting support services by young children, age birth to six, who have - or are at risk for- mental health challenges due to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) or other factors; (3) Implement an access process that safely diverts youth with mental health challenges from the juvenile justice system to community based alternatives; and ( 4) Intervene early with school age youth who are at risk of mental health challenges to provide a "right amount of service, to the right youth, at the right time." The project hopes to serve 970 people in its first 12 months of operation and 3,600 over the life of the project.
