The Alabama Department of Human Resources is seeking qualified vendors to provide forty (40) slots to assist with providing short term assessment and care coordination for youth under 21 years of age at risk of inpatient mental health hospitalizations (IPMH) or placement in long term Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF). The Department is also seeking to foster resilience and hope in youth and families. Providers are expected to create a highly structured environment that can provide for the stabilization and assessment of youth whose treatment needs require individualized care at the intensive service delivery level. The program will address the needs of youth with challenging behaviors and dispositions that require stabilization of the behavioral health symptoms that place them at risk for repeated disruption of services, increased placement moves, and acute hospitalization.
A more complete description of the services sought for this project is provided in Section 3, Scope of Project. Proposals submitted in response to this solicitation must comply with the instructions and procedures contained herein.
