SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)

Collection and dissemination of information on effective treatment for children. Directs the Virginia Commission on Youth to coordinate the collection and dissemination of empirically-based information that would identify the treatment modalities and practices recognized as effective for the treatment of children, including juvenile offenders, with mental health treatment needs, symptoms and disorders. This initiative is a recommendation of the Virginia Commission on Youth's Study of Children and Youth with Serious Emotional Disturbance Requiring Out-of-Home Placement (HJR 119, 2000) and the Committee Studying Treatment Options for Offenders with Mental Illness or Substance Abuse Disorders (SJR 440, 2001). The resolution is identical to HJR 119 (Tata) and HJR 165 (Darner). The Commission, or its successor in interest, must submit a copy of the information directed to be collected and disseminated to the General Assembly through the Senate Committee on Education and Health, the Senate Committee on Rehabilitation and Social Services, the House Committee on Health, Welfare and Institutions, and to the Division of Legislative Services, no later than November 30, 2002.
