As reflected in recent survey results, Wyoming’s High Fidelity Wraparound program exceeds
national norms for youth who struggle with mental or behavioral health concerns. 

As you are aware, Wyoming’s High Fidelity Wraparound program certifies its providers and offers ongoing group and one-on-one coaching. And providers undergo an annual recertification process; this requirement is unique to Wyoming.

The 2020 survey also reported specific outcomes for youth participants in High Fidelity Wraparound:

  • 17% of youth were placed for some time in an institution such as detention, residential treatment facility, group home or hospital, compared to a national wraparound average of 21%.
  • 7% reported having visited an emergency room for a mental health problem, compared to a national average of 13%.
  • 19% reported having experienced a negative contact with police, compared to a national average of 21%.
  • 13% of youth reported having experienced a suspension or expulsion from school, compared to a 24% national average.
“Overall, this year’s Fidelity Report shows that Wyoming’s High Fidelity Wraparound program is substantially keeping youth with mental and behavioral health concerns in their homes, in their schools and in their communities and that is where these families have the most success,” said Magellan’s director of operations Tammy Cooley.
