The California County Crisis Continuum Stage of Implementation Map you see below was initially constructed using data provided by California Behavioral Health Departments.
These Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)-funded programs were identified as part of the county-based crisis continuum of care and include Mobile Crisis, Justice Diversion, Brief Psychiatric Stabilization, Crisis or Warm Lines, Peer Respite, and Transition of Bridge Clinic. Counties indicated their programs’ Stages of Implementation in a survey administered by the CARE TA Center. Counties selected “Planning” if they are planning to establish a program, “Maintenance” for existing programs, “Growth” for programs in a stage of expansion, and “None” if the program type is not being planned or in existence.
Where counties are listed as “Program Exists,” the program’s existence is known through MHSAOC Transparency Suite data, however the stage of implementation was not reported on the CARE Implementation Survey. Where counties are listed as “Unknown,” there is no data from the CARE TA Implementation Survey or MHSOAC Transparency Suite. The information can be filtered by county and reflects the stage of implementation for each type of program.
Do you have an MHSA-funded program that you would like to flag for review- perhaps a program update since the data was collected? Or do you have an MHSA-funded program that you would like us to add? The CARE Team is committed to continual improvement, and we would be excited to review requests to change a program’s stage of implementation or update any information that is missing. You can help us do so by filling out this short form!
