Now the work begins. It will take all of us to do it.

Research is just the starting point. Informed by data in the mental health scan, stakeholders across our community must engage in the hard work of turning these findings into an action plan to improve the mental health care system. Together with Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation and Gulf Coast Community Foundation, a collaborative consortium of human service organizations will lead a unified system of care for children and families.
