CLC’s Mental Health Advocacy Team (MHAT) works to improve the emotional well-being and functioning of CLC clients by providing service and placement recommendations and supporting CLC attorneys in their efforts to advocate for those recommendations. MHAT works collaboratively with the case-carrying attorney and with other CLC specialists to develop a support plan with recommendations, resources, and referrals; in some cases, independent consultants are utilized to assess the youth and provide internal recommendations. MHAT team members attend IEPs, TDMs, hospital discharge meetings, and other multidisciplinary meetings to advocate for each foster youth referred to the program.
