Welcome to the Center of Excellence for

Children’s Behavioral Health

The Center of Excellence for Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health is part of the Georgia Health Policy Center which is housed within Georgia State University’s Andrew Young School of Policy Studies. The Center of Excellence was created in partnership with the Child and Adolescent Office of the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD).

This project is funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and builds on previous statewide efforts of the Community Based Alternatives for Youth (CBAY) project and KidsNet to develop and implement a sustainable System of Care that is individualized, comprehensive, coordinated, culturally competent, and driven by child and family needs.
