Resources for Improving Mental Health Services for Low-Income Children
According to a report by the Surgeon General, many children have mental health problems that interfere with normal development and functioning. In the United States, one in ten children and adolescents suffer from mental illness severe enough to cause some level of impairment in functioning at home, in school, or in the community. Lack of parity for mental health services is a problem for all insured individuals, including children. Early intervention is crucial for all children with mental health needs. Research has shown that behavioral and emotional problems are more prevalent among poor children than non-poor children. This may be due to multiple policy and practice issues, including access to services, lack of health insurance, mental health system capacity, misdiagnosis, and parents’ own mental health issues.

Contact Summer camp offers a time for children to learn about themselves, other people, and about aspects of the world to which they might not normally be exposed. They meet and interact with new children, often from different parts of the city and state, and with different backgrounds. Camp can be pure recreation, and it can be educational and a place to learn new skills and proficiencies. Some camps are designed to offer special and therapeutic experiences for children, helping them mature and learn to be more responsible for themselves. Summer camps can empower children to stay on the path of positive behavior. However, if your child already has a pattern of behavior problems or drug use, a residential program or structured boarding school would be more appropriate.

    Community Gardens

    This program began in 1973 and provides garden plots for use by City residents. There are currently two community garden locations with 70 individual plots. The City provides water and trash collection at the gardens. A Community Gardens Advisory Committee meets bi-monthly to discuss garden-related issues and resolve problems. The annual cost for a plot was recently raised from $18 to $40. As of December, 1996 there was a 2 to 3 year waiting list with 126 people waiting for garden plots to become available.
    Sustainable Landscape Workshops and Garden Tours
    In 1991 the City began sponsoring annual Sustainable Landscape workshops and bi-monthly tours of local sustainably-designed residential gardens. The workshops and tours are directed at residents and landscape professionals to promote the use of sustainable practices in the design and maintenance of landscaped areas. To date approximately 1150 people have participated in the workshops and tours.

Strengthening Our Capacity to Serve: Organizational Change Overview BRIEF: An important component of the OPEN-K project is to determine K-State Research and Extension’s capacity to serve at-risk/vulnerable children and their families. To document Extension’s current capacity, a 74 - item Organizational Change Survey ( loosely based on the national agents surveys conducted by the Search Institute in 1993-96) was distributed in 1998 to 327 K-State Research and Extension faculty, researchers, administrators and local personnel and with a 76% response rate.
A version of the survey is being sent out to a sample of local Extension Executive Board members in June, 1999. The survey will help us understand how other key Extension partners view our current capacity. The survey questions have been adapted for Executive Board members. Some questions in the survey touch-on support and training received, diversity and inclusivity of programming, statewide and local visions, and collaboration both within and outside K-State Research and Extension.
Both surveys will provide a strong baseline for gauging K-State Research and Extension’s growing capacity to develop, implement, and evaluate Youth, Family and Community Development programs (see K-State Research and Extension’s website

The division of vocational rehabilitation. The state office of economic opportunity. The apprenticeship council. The state office of manpower planning. The state department of mental retardation.
