Collaborative Management Program
Where do families turn when youth are experiencing challenges that feel overwhelming and require several providers to deliver services? Collaborative Management Program (CMP) might be the answer. CMP facilitates coordination of services for youth involved in multiple systems by engaging the youth, their families and other partners. The goal is to improve positive outcomes for the youth.
To qualify for Eagle County CMP services, the youth must:
Reside in Eagle County
Be between the ages of 0 and 18 years old
Be involved in multi-systems (e.g. mental health system, health care system, school system – see list of IOG partners which comprise the systems)
5th Judicial District Probation
5th Judicial District
Bright Future Foundation
Eagle County Department of Human Services
Eagle County Department of Public Health
Division of Youth Services
Eagle County Schools
Mind Springs Health
Mountain Family Health Centers
Rocky Mountain Health Plans
Roaring Fork School District
Vail Police Department
West Slope Casa
Referrals for youth can be made by these IOG partners. For assistance, contact Tracey Branch.
After a referral is submitted for an eligible youth, families and the youth attend an Individualized service and support team meeting (ISST). CMP plans these meetings with community agencies that provide services for the youth. The ISST meeting is family-focused, where their voices are the most important. The youth and family make the decisions on what services they will use based on recommendations made by providers.
In collaboration with IOG Partners, Mountain Youth operates the Eagle County CMP through a contract with Eagle County Department of Human Services. CMP is partially state-funded by the Colorado Department of Human Services and several local funding entities. In 2004, the Colorado State Legislature established CMP (House Bill 04-1451) with the purpose of supporting counties in facilitating coordination of services for multi-system involved youth in order to avoid duplication and increase positive outcomes for youth.
