The purpose of this website is to provide general information regarding children’s behavioral health services and supports in Maine.

Children's Behavioral Health services focus on behavioral health treatment and services for children from birth up to their 21st birthday. Services include providing information and assistance with referrals for children and youth with developmental disabilities/delays, intellectual disability, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and mental health disorders.

The Office of Child and Family Services has engaged with partners, including the Public Consulting Group (PCG), to evaluate and pursue recommendations for improvements within the children's behavioral health system (CBHS). Included in that work was the development of a report addressing internal CBHS operations at the Department.
