Wraparound: Supporting our Children and Youth

The New Hampshire Children’s Behavioral Health Collaborative has established that the Wraparound approach to behavioral health for children and youth is fundamental to supporting children and youth with complex behavioral health challenges and their families. Our FAST Forward (Families and Systems Together) program of the NH Department of Health and Human Services uses this approach. The program is free, and families choose whether they want to participate or not.

What is wraparound?

Wraparound is an approach with demonstrated effectiveness for children and youth with complex behavioral health challenges. It is a planning and support process where a team develops and implements an individualized plan of care. A team is chosen by the family and includes individuals who are relevant to the well-being of the child or youth, such as family members, service providers, teachers, a FAST Forward coordinator, and representatives from school, church, or community agencies, such as mental health providers.
