4 Illinois Department of Human Services Division of Mental Health State Operated Facilities Catchment Area Map by Hospital


6 DMH Community Providers Regions manage contracts with 149 private provider organizations. Each provider operates a different array of program and residential sites. Some providers operate 1 site, others operate multiple sites. DHS/DMH sets standards the providers must conform to maintain certification. Individual services must comply with Rules and Regulations set by DHS/DMH.


8 DMH Vision It is the vision of the DMH that all persons with mental illness recover, and are able to participate fully in life in the community. “The Expectation is Recovery!”

9 Three Ways to Access DMH Service System 1.Consumer request for services at local Community MH Center. 2.Consumer in crisis presents at a local community hospital emergency room. 3.Family and/or friends can go to the Cook County States Attorney’s Office to get a Writ of Detention.

10 Local Emergency Room  A common entry point for the public MH system.  Result in the patient receiving: Medical Clearance Psychiatric Evaluation Benefits Clearance Pre-screening by community MH provider  )Relationship building  )Offer less restrictive, community based alternative  )Begin discharge planning

11 Emergency Room [Continued]  If hospitalization needed -- three choices: 1. Private community hospital admission using insurance/other coverage; 2. Private community hospital admission using CHIPS funding from DMH; or 3. Transfer to State Operated Hospital.

12 Emergency Room [Continued] Sometimes hospital crisis workers, or community agency crisis workers co-located at the emergency room, will help construct a plan by which the individual can leave the ER without hospitalization. When this happens, the individual may be immediately linked or rapidly linked to community- based services.

23 Three Cs of Transformation  Capacity Building  Continuum of Care  Collaboration …….For the Justice Involved Individual with SMI and Co-Occurring Disorders

24 DMH Community Treatment Data (2006)  2,244 consumers of 129,564 consumers were UST or NGRI  2,872 consumers of 129,564 were referred by corrections or under court supervision (parole or probation) IDOC & Jail Data Based on IDOC data approximately 3000 or 10% of all inmates paroled in a given year have serious mental health issues that necessitate care in the community. Cook County Jail which has a daily census ranging from 9,000 to 11,000 treats 10% of the jail population for serious mental illness. There 22,000+ jail beds in Illinois. Researchers estimate that 10% -16% of detainees have serious mental illness.

31 Description of Jail Data Link The Jail Data Link program provides a web based computer cross match between the census in county jails and open DHS cases. The program identifies individuals in our targeted mental health population that should have been involved in services with community mental health providers, but have been detained in jail. The program also provides case managers located with community providers that provide linkage to community services from county jails.

33 DMH Justice & Mental Health Transformation Goals (continued)  Increased collaboration between system partners and stakeholders to facilitate federal funds to the state, advocacy for helpful legislation, and expansion of existing initiatives and practices.  Improved integration with Illinois county court systems in responding to Forensic and MH/Criminal Justice issues.


35 Sample Case #1 -- Region 3 & 4 Steven -- Illustrates how people released from DOC informally make their way into DMH funded programs. At the same time, it underscores the risk factors that could be avoided if a coordinated referral and linkage effort was in place between these service sectors.

36 Sample Case #2 -- Region 5 Alex – Illustrates how collaboration between the Probation Office and the local Community MHC can help to titrate services from each partner to match need of the individual over time.

37 Sample Case #3 – Region 1 John -- A case that illustrates how some cases take continued hard work by all partners over time. Partners do much to keep each other going under circumstances that would overwhelm a single provider.

38 Sample Case #4 -- Region 3 & 4 Sally -- A case that illustrates how existing relationships between Probation Office and Community Provider can pave the way for quick response to emergent needs that might otherwise cause a person to loose ground or return to an institution (prison/hospital/or both).

39 Sample Case #5 -- Region 5 Jeremy -- A case that illustrates how the addition of a court order to existing ACT services helped a homeless person with a history of violence find stable housing, stay off drugs, make friends, and begin to re-connect with family.

40 Sample Case #6 – Region 3&4 Bobby -- A case that illustrates how “disconnects” from DOC to community public mental health services could create high risk situations for the individual, the community MHC, and the Department of Correction.

41 Sample Case #7 -- Region 5 John II -- A case that illustrates how the addition of mental health court oversight helped to bring very troublesome symptoms, which were not previously controlled by mental health care alone, under control and lead to positive steps to recovery.
