CGR coordinated a year-long research and community-based planning process which resulted in 2002 in a detailed action plan to expand and improve mental health and related services to children and adolescents, and their families, in Broome County. The primary focus of the county and state Office of Mental Health-funded project was on high-need children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbances who are in, or at risk of placement in, a psychiatric inpatient or residential facility.

This resulting action plan, with short and longer-term priorities, led to significant changes, and also led to a separate study that identified the number of children with co-occurring mental health and developmental disability conditions, and service gaps for this population.
