Abstract

The process of describing existing services for American Indian and Alaska Native children with serious emotional disturbance by the Circles of Care strategic planning initiative is overviewed. We explain why service system description is important and how it helped define the role of evaluation within the initiative. Primary goals and methodologies of the service system description are described. Key findings, challenges and opportunities presented by the findings, and impact on the planning process are described.
