Interagency Directors Team (IDT)

Interagency Directors Team (IDT)

The IDT was created by Georgia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) in order to design, manage, facilitate, and implement an integrated approach to a child and adolescent system of care that informs policy and practice, and shares resources and funding. IDT is made up of over 20 representatives from state agencies and non-governmental organizations that serve children with behavioral health needs. The group transitioned from the Children and Adolescent State Infrastructure Grant (CASIG) Interagency Workgroup to the IDT in 2011.

The IDT aims to:

> Better child and adolescent behavioral health in Georgia

> Design, manage, facilitate, and implement an integrated approach

> Use System of Care model

> Inform policy and practice

> Integrate resources/funding
