Children's Behavioral Health
Please send us your suggestions or questions concerning this website.
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.
The Mills Administration today released a report completed during the LePage Administration on children's behavioral health. The Department is closely and quickly reviewing this report and its recommendations and will take all appropriate actions. Also, part of this work was a report on children’s behavioral health that reviewed factors external to OCFS operations.
