The service will step away from a system defined in terms of the services the organization provides (Tiered model) towards one that sees service provision as a whole system approach with the focus being on the desire to build upon individual and community strengths wherever possible and ensures that young people and their families are active decision makers in the process of choosing the right treatment approach.
