BACKGROUND:
The cornerstone of the County's Mental Health Services Act Community Services and Supports plan is the delivery of Full Service Partnership (FSP) services for our highest risk consumers with serious mental illness. FSP programs are designed to allow consumers to remain living in the community and decrease their hospitalizations and/or incarcerations by providing case management, medication management, therapy, social activities, and 24/7 response capability to mitigate an evolving situation.

In January 2014, Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS) conducted a Request For Proposal process to select providers of both ongoing (comprehensive) and integrated FSP services, for a 3-year term, with the option to renew for an additional 2 years. Telecare Corporation (Telecare) submitted a proposal and was selected to provide these services, to begin on July 1, 2014.

DISCUSSION:
Telecare will provide FSP and Housing Support services for up to a maximum of 207 enrollees annually. In addition to serving our highest risk consumers, this number also includes non-violent felons who were released from the State prison to County supervision under the Criminal Justice Realignment Act. FSP enrollees will have services available 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Housing support services will be provided to FSP enrollees in order to assist them in achieving independence, stability, and overall emotional and physical wellness.
