NARBHA Children's Services staff uses a team approach to develop and enhance programming that helps pave the way toward children and families experiencing the Arizona Vision and Twelve Principles:
- Collaboration with the child and family: Collaboration with the child and family is essential. Parents and children are treated as partners in all stages of service delivery.
- Functional outcomes: Behavioral health services are designed and implemented to aid children to be successful in school, live with their families, avoid delinquency and become stable and productive adults.
- Collaboration with others: Children with multi-system involvement will have a jointly established child/family centered service plan.
- Accessible services: Children will have access to a wide array of behavioral health services, which will be adapted or created when not available.
- Best practices: Behavioral health services are provided according to best practices and are continually evaluated and modified to achieve desired outcomes.
- Most appropriate setting: Children are provided services in their home and community to the extent possible.
- Timeliness: Children identified as needing behavioral health services are assessed and served promptly.
- Services tailored to the child and family: Services are tailored to the child and family with their unique strengths and needs driving the service array provided.
- Stability: Behavioral health services strive to minimize multiple placements and prevent crisis situations.
- Respect for the child and family's unique cultural heritage: Behavioral health services are provided in a manner that respects the cultural tradition of the child and family.
- Independence: Behavioral health services include support and training for both parents and children to gain independence.
- Connection to natural supports: Natural supports will be used from the family's own community network including friends, neighbors, and organizations.
