Requires support services to be developed through a collaborative approach between the Department, the child, if aged 14 years or older, the child's parent or guardian, other service providers or State agencies that work with children or youth, schools, extended family and friends, and any other persons that the child or family identifies as integral to the child's social, mental, or emotional development. Requires the Department to determine by rule the specific types of support services available to children and families served by the Department, including, but not limited to, medical services, mental health services, substance abuse services, job training and career education services, and self-sufficiency planning.
