The Community Service Agency (CSA) works to organize and facilitate a monthly Local Systems of Care (LSOC) meeting with community providers.
BAMSI’s Community Service Agency offers a collaborative forum where community members and area mental health experts as well as youth service providers from Brockton, Holbrook, Easton, Avon, Stoughton, Bridgewater, East Bridgewater and West Bridgewater come together to serve as an Advisory Committee to the CSA.
The goal of the LSOC is to:
- Review quality management processes that address opportunities to improve the delivery of the CSA services including reviewing systemic barriers while identifying and fostering community resources and relationships to promote sustainability;
- Foster community resource monitoring and development including identifying and monitoring gaps in services, conducting community asset mapping, building capacity of resources and supports, and improving linkages with the schools and other natural supports in the community;
- Identify challenges or themes related to the delivery of Intensive Care Coordination (ICC) services that arise from program data that indicate access and coordination barriers. The Local Systems of Care Committee provides assistance in navigating access to address needs of youth and families served by ICC. The local Systems of Care Committee does not engage in individual level review or management of families engaged in ICC.
