High Fidelity Wraparound
Supporting families navigating children’s mental health
Wraparound supports youth and their families with complex mental health needs by focusing on their strengths and support system. High Fidelity Wraparound is a team-based care coordination process that honors and builds on family culture. The family, Wraparound Team, and community providers partner to develop an individualized plan that supports access to resources and informal supports and builds confidence in their ability to problem-solve in the future.
10 Guiding Principles
Family voice and choice. Family and youth perspectives are prioritized throughout the process and choices reflect family values and preferences.
Team-Supported. The team consists of individuals committed to the family through informal, formal, and community supports and services. Relationships are agreed upon by the family.
Natural supports. The plan reflects activities and interventions that draw on sources of natural support for the family, such as extended family, friends, neighbors and others in their social circles.
Collaboration. Team members work collaboratively to develop, implement, monitor, and evaluate the plan.
Community-based. The team implements service and support strategies that take place in the most inclusive, most responsive, most accessible, and least restrictive settings possible, safely promoting child and family integration into home and community life.
Culturally responsive. The process builds on the values, preferences, beliefs, culture, and identify of the family and their community.
Individualized. The team develops and implements a customized set of strategies, supports, and services.
Strengths-based. The process and plan identify, build on, and enhance the capabilities, knowledge, skills, and assets of the child and family, their community, and other team members.
Unconditional Care. Despite challenges, the team persists in working toward the goals of the plan until the team reaches an agreement that a formal process is no longer needed.
Outcome-based. The team ties the goals and strategies of the plan to observable or measurable indicators of success, monitors progress, and revises the plan accordingly.
