Children are assessed in accordance with section 11462.01 of the Welfare and Institution Code as meeting applicable criteria for placement as specified in Health and Safety Code section 1502.4. Specifically, children appropriate for placement meet criteria as seriously emotionally disturbed and are in need of mental health services and behavioral stabilization, but do not require inpatient care in a licensed health facility. These children typically have substantial impairment in one or more of the following: self-care, school functioning, family relationships, emotional regulation, explosive anger, frustration tolerance, cognitive functioning, and/or ability to function in the community.
