Katie A. Introduction

The Child Welfare Mental Health Services Division (CWMHSD) (formerly Katie A. Division) was created to ensure that the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, Department of Mental Health and Department of Health Services met the goals of the County of Los Angeles’ Settlement Agreement for the Katie A., et al., vs. Diana Bontà, et al., (State of California and County of Los Angeles) lawsuit. The five plaintiff foster children requested, in lieu of payment, that “the County and State” improve upon their delivery of services to all children and young adults under the custody of DCFS, and/or those at risk of entering the child welfare system.

The CWMHSD is working collaboratively with the Department of Mental Health and Health Services to develop new programs, initiatives, policies and guidelines to ensure that the mental health and medical needs of each child is met to promote the safety, permanence, and well-being of all children served.
