Integrating Family Services (IFS)

What We Do

The Department of Mental Health is a major partner in the Agency of Human Services Integrating Family Services initiative. IFS brings together different programs and funding streams within AHS to create a single, flexible service delivery and payment system for services and supports to children, youth and their families so that practice and planning better match their needs.

DMH has two participating providers: Counseling Services of Addison County (CSAC) and Northeast Counseling and Support Services (NCSS). These providers work with the Parent Child Centers in their respective regions.

Who We Serve

This initiative provides supports and services to children, youth and families (prenatal to age 22).

How We Impact

Bringing these programs and funding streams together the following performance measures focus on whether Vermonters are better off as a result of this initiative. They do so by looking at the quality and efficiency of these programs and services.
