New Findings on Wraparound’s Effectiveness
April 13, 2021 | Nicole Aue
The Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry has just published a new study that formally summarizes the existing research on Wraparound’s costs and impact on child and youth outcomes. The new meta-analysis combines findings from 17 previous studies, and shows positive effects of Wraparound on cost of care, maintaining children and youth in their homes and communities, school functioning, mental health symptoms and general functioning. The analyses also suggest that Wraparound is particularly effective in producing positive outcomes for children and youth of color.
