ABSTRACT

Care Provider Facilities Described Challenges Addressing Mental Health Needs of Children in HHS Custody   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Document: "By law, ORR [Office of Refugee Resettlement], which is within the Department of Health and Human Services, has custody of and must provide care for each unaccompanied child, including addressing their mental health needs. ORR-funded care provider facilities are required to provide counseling to children and arrange for more specialized mental health services, as needed. We conducted our fieldwork during a time when ORR was experiencing an influx of children. Our findings could inform the Unaccompanied Alien Children Program's preparation for future surges."
