  11. Positive Change • Improved linkages made for children and families with identified behavioral health concerns (through the CWS process or by family/pediatrician judgment) • Belief that children were getting identified earlier, and thus getting appropriate referrals earlier. LAUNCH seen to actively facilitate the referral process for children and families and improve access to community-based supports. • Co-location of a MHC within pediatric clinic reported to reduce logistical challenges and stigma associated with families following through with behavioral health referral. • Clinic providers noted RI LAUNCH clinicians were an important part of their support network to address behavioral health concerns

  12. Challenges • Barriers remain to getting children connected supportive services • family engagement and motivation • limited community referral options for young children, esp. for mental health • language and cultural barriers • transportation • lack of health insurance • Reported variability about perceived value of CWS • Issues with receiving results before the family’s encounter is complete • Perception the screen is inaccurate • Belief that the CWS is unlikely to identify children providers would otherwise miss as having a developmental or behavioral need. • Need for continued education and training in certain aspects of early childhood development and behavioral health.
