The wraparound process is rapidly becoming a part of mainstream human services. The first state-wide system of care-based wraparound effort was established in Alaska in 1986. These efforts were based on creative agency based individualized planning being done at the Kaleidoscope Agency in Chicago, which was based on deinstitutionalization and normalization efforts across North America and in other parts of the world. During the over 25-year history of the wraparound process, wraparound has emerged as a primary method of integration of and delivery of services and supports for children and youth with complex behavioral health needs, and their families.
