title

Adopt a resolution authorizing an agreement with California Clubhouse, Inc. for consumer-run peer-support and self-help services for the term of July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2021, in an amount not to exceed $655,574.

BACKGROUND:

In 2014 Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS) completed a three-year planning process for services and support to be funded by the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). After conducting an extensive stakeholder process, it was determined that supporting individuals living in the community and connecting such individuals with employment, volunteer opportunities, and ongoing peer support were among the highest of priorities.

 

A group of parents, whose adult children live with a persistent, serious mental illness, researched and launched the California Clubhouse (Clubhouse) in San Mateo County.  They received formal training and the Clubhouse was granted 501(c)(3) not-for-profit status, as a consumer-run organization to provide consumer peer-support and self-help services in San Mateo County.

 

DISCUSSION:

The Clubhouse provides a membership-based community where adults with severe mental illness find a network of support and skills needed to achieve social, financial, educational, and vocational goals. Members are offered support, training, education, healthy social interaction, and positive reinforcement through collegial relationships.  The success of the Clubhouse is achieved by members helping each other become productive members of society through motivation and shared experience.

 

The resolution contains the County’s standard provisions allowing amendment of the County’s fiscal obligations by a maximum of $25,000 (in aggregate).

 

The agreement and resolution have been reviewed and approved by County Counsel as to form. This agreement is late due to prolonged contract negotiations. This agreement is on the Continuing Resolution.

 

The agreement contributes to the Shared Vision 2025 outcome of a Healthy Community by providing individuals with persistent mental illness a place where they can receive support, training, education, healthy social interaction, and positive reinforcement through collegial relationships and meaningful employment/volunteer opportunities. The Clubhouse can help fill a much-needed gap in support services, a primary strategy for MHSA in San Mateo County. It is anticipated that 270 clients (90% of total) will receive peer-support services.
