Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)

 

Recovery Oriented Treatment Services

Services traditionally provided in the mental health system including screening and assessment, clinical case management, individual or group therapy and medication management.  These services support the MHSA’s philosophy that mental health needs are not defined by symptoms but rather by a focus on achieving, maintaining, and promoting the overall health and well-being of the individual and family.


Full Service Partnership Programs

Full Service Partnership (FSP) programs reflect an intensive and comprehensive model of case management based on a client- and family-centered philosophy of doing “whatever it takes” to assist individuals diagnosed with SMI or SED to lead independent, meaningful, and productive lives. Services include integrated, recovery-oriented mental health treatment; intensive case management and linkage to essential services; housing and vocational support; and self-help.

Behavioral Health and Juvenile Justice Integration Programs

Since 2010-11, all youth detained for more than 72 hours at San Francisco’s Juvenile Justice Center are assessed for behavioral health needs (see Exhibit 15).  Any identified needs are presented to the Juvenile Probation Department to be addressed in case planning with local courts. MHSA funds additional psychiatric services in the Youth Guidance Center Clinic – a clinic providing free primary health care, case management and psycho-social services to incarcerated youth ages 8-18. Youth exiting the Juvenile Justice Center may be referred to MHSA funded case-management and mentoring.
