Telecare PROPS (Post Release Outpatient Program Services) program (also referred to as AB109) is a Full Service Partnership (FSP). This county-contracted program is the result of a collaborative effort between Probation and Behavioral Health Services. The PROPS program serves people being released from prison who are supervised by the probation department as result of the Assembly Bill 109. This program exists to help people live successfully in the community and make strides towards their hopes and dreams and achieve their personal recovery goals, while avoiding a return to the criminal justice system and unnecessary psychiatric hospitalization.
Just the Basics
Population Served: Adults ages 18-59 with serious mental illness and forensic
Funded by: San Diego County
Building on traditional ACT standards, Telecare has created a recovery-centered experience for people served. Telecare’s approach is based on a belief that recovery can happen. Programs and staff strive to create an environment where a person can choose to recover. By connecting to each individual’s core self and trusting it to guide the way, it is possible to awaken the desire to embark on the recovery journey.
ACT programs use multidisciplinary teams that include psychiatrists, nurses, masters-level clinical staff, and personal service coordinators. Some staff may be consumers who are in recovery themselves.
