Nationwide, fed. funding to states supported more than 200,000 youth in facilities seeking help for behavioral or emotional challenges in 2004. Recent fed. reviews and investigations highlighted maltreatment in some facilities, resulting in hospitalizations and deaths. This testimony discusses: (1) what is known about incidents that adversely affect youth well-being in residential facilities; (2) the extent that state oversight ensures youth well-being in these facilities; and (3) the factors that affect the ability of fed. agencies to hold states accountable for youth well-being in residential facilities. This testimony is based on national surveys to state agencies of child welfare, health and mental health, and juvenile justice for the year 2006. Charts.
