The Division of Child and Family Behavioral Health (CFBH) is composed of faculty and staff engaged in research and evaluation of children’s behavioral health services as well as training, technical assistance, and knowledge sharing that supports, improves, and sustains programs and systems that serve children and their families. The division’s mission is to promote the health and well-being of children and families while empowering them to positively impact their own lives.  Major focus areas include evidence-based services, mental health disparities, school mental health, child welfare, transition age youth and young adults, and interagency collaboration and system development. Division goals include being responsive to the needs of states, communities, and public sector child-serving systems as well as developing collaborative, well-functioning systems of care for at-risk children and families. CFBH faculty have lead roles in CFS’ MS in Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health. The division is home to the peer-reviewed Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders and the Journal of Behavioral Health Services and Research.
