Contract for services to a New Hampshire vendor to create, support, and manage a program that treats children and young adults experiencing behavioral health problems. Funding is intended to develop infrastructure and offer support to providers of standardized, conflict-free assessments for residential treatment for children, youth, and young adults with behavioral health concerns. The selected Vendor must implement a quality improvement process for the providers who make up the assessment program.

The goal of the Comprehensive Assessment for Treatment (CAT) is to ensure that residential treatment is used for targeted treatment. The CAT will determine whether a child is in need of residential treatment; additionally, the CAT will determine the level of care for residential treatment that is most appropriate for the child. This will enable providers and the State to target resources to treat and stabilize conditions and symptoms of behavioral health issues so that children, youth, and young adults are not in residential settings beyond what is clinically necessary.
