8 Recent History Services historically evolved Developed process of Operational and Strategic review Social Advocacy and Engagement Implementation Innovations –RAPS –Central intake

10 Later Progress Established Transitional Program Additional community acute bed at Magnolia New Rapid Access Clinic (E. 13 th Street entry) – crisis response Contract review for improved patient care Central intake process Community services redesign

11 The Present

12 Agenda for the Present Establishing priorities: our responsibilities Redesign: community mental health services Redesign: community addiction/concurrent disorders services

13 Priorities Priority populations need the right services at the right time in the right setting More services delivered in community – when it’s the right setting Services delivered in hospital – when it’s the right setting

14 From This: ATS: High Prevalence Illness: Depression Anxiety GP referred CPS: Low Prevalence Illness: Serious and Persistent 1.Inefficiency: multiple intake processes; lack of discharge criteria; over extended client enrollments; duplication of services also available in community 2.Services (ATS) beyond usual publicly funded system; not sustainable in our economy 3.Most severely ill slotted in ATS or CPS silo 4.No central intake and triage process 5.Need to increase crisis response capacity

15 15 To This: Serving the Most In Need Clients With Existing Resources Community Mental Health Services Former CPS and ATS Priority Clients Combined Programming: Group, Outreach, Rehabilitation, etc. Reduced administration Reduced duplication Clarity regarding mandate Using available resources for those most in-need

16 Our Opportunity! Integration of ATS and CPS for new Community Mental Health Services Shifting priority focus to most vulnerable population either with serious, persistent illness, or other debilitating illness Reduce administrative costs; co-locate teams; clinical cross training and skill development; opportunity to develop ACT teams

17 Substance Misuse/Concurrent Disorders Services The number of people with co-occurring disorders tends to be highly underestimated. These individuals: –Are highest in risk for harm –Incur the highest service costs –Experience the poorest outcomes K. Minkoff, MD

18 When compared with people who have a mental health problem alone, people with dual diagnosis are more likely to have: –Increased likelihood of suicide –More severe mental health problems –Homelessness and unstable housing –Increased risk of victimization –Increased risk for HIV infection –More contact with the criminal justice system –Increased risk of being violent Examples of Risk for Harms
