On December 12, 1995, the County Board of Supervisors supported recommendations to transform the Children’s Mental Health System.  A Children’s Mental Health Services System of Care Steering Committee was established; a Public, Private and Family partnership. In 2004, this committee evolved into the Children’s Mental Health Services System of Care Council, a four sector partnership: Public, Private, Family and Education.
