Independent Third Party Review


Greater Mental Health of New York collaborates with the Westchester County Department of Social Services (DSS) to offer Independent Third Party Review services. Our Impartial Reviewer facilitates Service Plan Reviews, focusing on children in foster care or court-directed placements. 

At Greater Mental Health of New York, our Independent Third Party Review maintains a concise, collaborative, and goal-oriented approach to support families in foster care or court-directed placements. Not tasked with case planning or service delivery, the Independent Third Party Reviewer ensures objectivity and aids participants in collaboratively developing family service plan goals that align with the permanency plan during the Service Plan Review. 

I appreciated how included we felt in the meeting and the genuine interest in permanency for our foster son.

The facilitator was very patient and showed great care for the children, their well-being, and best interests.

Everything that was in the meeting was well explained and I was given the option to participate, provide my thoughts and opinions.
