Screening Process: Court involved youth will receive a GAIN SS. Each DJJDP will identify which youth will receive this screening based on their current structure and individual district/county needs. Based on the outcome of the GAIN SS, the Court Counselor will offer child/family provider choice and make referral to one of the Partnership providers for GAIN-I assessment. 

Assessment Process: The JJSAMHP Partnership clinician will complete a full GAIN assessment and make clinically appropriate recommendations. The assessing clinician will offer the consumer/family provider choice and make referrals to identified service and chosen partnership provider.

Treatment Process: Each youth will have a Child and Family Team that will help design and guide treatment options. The Child and Family Team meets at least monthly for each youth and other child serving agencies as well as family advocates are actively recruited to be part of the treatment process for each youth.
