Subject:relinquishment of custody

Does anyone have information on what state child welfare systems are doing to effecitvely address cases where parents have to relinquish custody, or what we refer to in Texas as "refusal to accept parentl responsibility," due to the inability to obtain appropriate mental health services for a child? I'm especially interested in innovative approaches that don't involve substantiating maltreatment in cases where parents have exhausted all efforts to obtain mental health services for their child. Thank You, Katherine Barillas, Ph.D. Policy Fellow One Voice Texas
