    • Most recent Psychiatric/Psychosocial Evaluation

    • Individual Treatment Plan

    • Progress/Med Notes (2 to 3 months of recent notes)

    If there is any other evaluations/information that you feel helps describe the person's need for services, please include that as well.


    In order to be eligible for services, the person must meet ALL of the following criteria. By submitting this referral, you attest this to be true.

    • The youth has a Public Behavioral Health System (PBHS) specialty mental health DSM-5 diagnosis and the youth's impairment(s) and functional behavior can reasonably be expected to be improved or maintained by using these services.

    • The youth's emotional disturbance is the cause of serious dysfunction in multiple life domains (home, school, community).

    • The impairment, as a result of the youth's emotional disturbance, results in:

      • A clear, current threat to the youth's ability to be maintained in his/her customary setting, or

      • An emerging/impending risk to the safety of the youth and others, or

      • Other evidence of significant psychological or social impairments such as inappropriate social behavior causing serious problems with peer relationships and/or family members.

    • The youth, due to the dysfunction, is at-risk for requiring a higher level of care, or is returning from a higher level of care.

    • The youth's condition requires an integrated program of rehabilitation services to return to age-appropriate development and to progress accordingly towards independent functioning and independent living skills.

    • The youth does not require a more intensive level of care and is deemed to be able to be safely maintained in the rehabilitation program and to benefit from the rehabilitation provided.

    • There is evidence that the use of pharmacotherapy, if deemed appropriate, has been considered by the primary treating clinician.

    • And either: There is clinical evidence that the current intensity of outpatient treatment is not sufficient to reduce the youth's symptoms and functional behavioral impairment resulting from the mental illness and restore him/her to an appropriate functional level, or prevent clinical deterioration, or avert the need to initiate a more intensive level of care due to current risk to the youth or others;

    • Or alternatively: The youth is transitioning from an inpatient, day hospital or residential treatment setting to a community setting and there is clinical evidence that PRP services will be necessary to prevent clinical deterioration and support a successful transition back to the community or avert the need to initiate or continue a more intensive level of care.
