Abstract: Children and youth in out-of-home care have high rates of behavioral health need, and states are increasingly adopting screening protocols to identify and intervene with these youth. This study presents longitudinal analyses of the case flow of youth aged 3–17 in Washington State's foster care system, tracking rates of screening, scoring above or below clinical criteria cutoff scores, and service receipt. This study describes what variables are associated with these three decision points.
