245.4931 INTEGRATED LOCAL SERVICE SYSTEM.

The integrated service system established by the local children's mental health collaborative must:

(1) include a process for communicating to agencies in the local system of care eligibility criteria for services received through the local children's mental health collaborative and a process for determining eligibility. The process shall place strong emphasis on outreach to families, respecting the family role in identifying children in need, and valuing families as partners;

(2) include measurable outcomes, timelines for evaluating progress, and mechanisms for quality assurance and appeals;

(3) involve the family, and where appropriate the individual child, in developing multiagency service plans to the extent required in sections 125A.08; 245.4871, subdivision 21; 245.4881, subdivision 4; 253B.03, subdivision 7; 260C.212, subdivision 1; and 260C.201, subdivision 6;

(4) meet all standards and provide all mental health services as required in sections 245.487 to 245.4889, and ensure that the services provided are culturally appropriate;

(5) spend funds generated by the local children's mental health collaborative as required in sections 245.491 to 245.495;

(6) encourage public-private partnerships to increase efficiency, reduce redundancy, and promote quality of care; and

(7) ensure that, if the county participant of the local children's mental health collaborative is also a provider of child welfare targeted case management as authorized by the 1993 legislature, then federal reimbursement received by the county for child welfare targeted case management provided to children served by the local children's mental health collaborative must be directed to the integrated fund.
