Discovery Integration Transformation
Discovery Integration Transformation
Wraparound is a planning process that follows a series of steps to help children and their families realize their hopes and dreams. It is a planning process that gathers individuals from different parts of the entire family’s life. With assistance from facilitators, the group works together toward coordinating activities and blending their perspective of the family’s situation.
Though every family’s situation is different; wraparound may look different from one family to another however the process of wraparound should always be driven by the same 10 principles.
High Fidelity Wraparound is also always based on 4 key elements.
Mississippi will lead the nation with professionals who are well trained and dedicated to providing high-fidelity Wraparound that results in empowerment and real-life solutions for families.
The Mississippi Wraparound Institute is a partnership between The University of Southern Mississippi’s School of Social Work, Division of Medicaid, and Mississippi Department of Mental Health. The institute was developed to assist the State of Mississippi and the State’s child-serving agencies and their identified partners with efforts to (1) accomplish successful development of integrated systems of mental and behavioral health that follow the principles of the high-fidelity Wraparound model and (2) successfully implement and sustain Wraparound facilitation as a service.
To provide support and resources to child serving agencies that utilize high-fidelity Wraparound principles and philosophies, and our community and state partners.
