Ohio Systems of Care Project ECHO for Multi-System Youth Case Referral, Presentation and Recommendations Process
Family and Children First Council (FCFC) coordinators may refer a case for consultation during a Systems of Care Project ECHO for Multi-System Youth session to the Family and Children First Regional Liaisons, Aimee.Matusik@mha.ohio.gov and Jennie.Horner@mha.ohio.gov)

The FCF Regional Liaison will triage referrals and request that the FCF coordinator complete an ECHO case presentation form for the case selected for presentation. (Click here to download form.) The FCF coordinator contacts SystemofCareECHO@neomed.edu for information about a secure pathway for sharing the case information with the SOC ECHO experts. Individuals are welcome and encouraged to attend all ECHO sessions, not just those at which they are presenting a case.
