About Thurston Mason MOT & ICM Teams

Telecare’s Thurston Mason Mobile Outreach (MOT) and Intensive Case Management (ICM) Teams were developed to provide specialized, recovery-focused services to people with mental health and/or substance use issues. The intent of these programs is to help individuals during times of mental health or substance use related crisis, so they can regain stability, stay safe in the community, and prevent incarceration or unnecessary hospitalization.

Intensive Case Management Essentials

  • Up to 90 days of case management for those who meet admission criteria
  • May include assistance with Medicaid enrollment, connection with primary care provider, and housing
  • Assistance from Peer Recovery Coaches who can help facilitate connections to community supports

Mobile Outreach Essentials

  • Support in the community for those experiencing a crisis related to mental illness and/or substance use
  • Coordinate services with first responders (police, EMS) on initial screening and triage
  • On-site assessment, stabilization, and safety planning
  • Provides services in lieu of incarceration

Recovery Model

Our services are designed using Telecare’s Recovery-Centered Clinical System (RCCS). This system incorporates evidence-based practices and innovative design components, and emphasizes choice-making skills, harm-reduction techniques and strives to awaken the hopes and dreams of the individual. The RCCS emphasizes “no-force first” practices. Staff work with individuals within their cultural dynamic in building independence and self-responsibility to foster their recovery and successfully transition them back to lower levels of care.
