Adult and Children Mobile Triage Case Management Services:
An Adult Triage Case Manager (Sheriff Liaison), a Children Triage Case Manager, and a Children Triage Peer Specialist are part of the Calaveras Health and Human Services Agency/Behavioral Health Crisis and Outreach Unit, and are available to provide crisis interventions in the community, thereby reducing the number of psychiatric hospitalizations; improving the collaboration between law enforcement, hospital, schools and behavioral health services; reducing the number and frequency of 911 repeat crisis calls and effectively linking individuals with mental illness to community supports to reduce the frequency of crisis situations.
The Crisis and Outreach Unit clinician, case manager and supervisor are located at the Behavioral Health Mental Health Clinic, and the Triage Case Managers are co-located at the BHS Mental Health Clinic, Children System of Care office, and the Sheriff Office next to the dispatchers’ station– in order to be able to respond immediately to crisis situations in the community.
The Crisis Unit clinicians, case manager and clinical supervisor will be responsible for rollout to hospital for 5150 evaluations, hospital discharges, and if the situation is an emergency, will meet with the person seeking crisis services. Follow-up crisis stabilization services will be provided by the BHS Triage Case Managers and Peer Specialist. If a crisis situation occurs in the community, the Triage Case Managers will be contacted to outreach to the person in crisis.
