This report presents the results of the 2022 annual stakeholder survey that was administered to system of care stakeholders in the five CMHI 2.0 communities. The stakeholder survey assesses the degree to which various implementation supports and activities have been implemented and fidelity to the systems of care principles in the service delivery system, including the extent to which services are individualized, family-driven, youth-guided, coordinated, culturally and linguistically competent, based on evidence-informed and promising practices, least restrictive, and comprehensive. In addition, the survey measures several system-level outcomes, including availability of specific services, coordination among various child- and family-serving systems (child welfare, education, public health, juvenile justice, primary health, substance abuse, and mental and behavioral health); and commitment to the SOC philosophy and approach.
