New Programs

We're pleased to announce the opening of two programs in California.

Stanislaus County Expands Acute and Crisis Services

Stanislaus County Behavioral Health & Recovery Services contracted with Telecare to operate a new 16-bed Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF) at the county's newly renovated Recovery Center Campus. The program opened in March 2014 and is one piece of the county's larger effort to offer residents a broader and richer continuum of care designed to help people cope with crises and minimize the need for inpatient care. The PHF functions as the county's designated 5150 site. It is co-located with a consumer-run warm line. A four-bed crisis stabilization unit is also planned to open in late 2014.

To house the PHF, Stanislaus County completed a beautiful renovation of a 10,000-square-foot building on its existing Recovery Center Campus (above left). An open house reception was held to introduce it to the community.

Riverside County Brings IMD Clients Back In-County with New ACT Services

Riverside County Department of Mental Health has partnered with Telecare to open the brand new Riverside Integrated Services (RISE) program. Opened in February 2014, RISE was created with the specific goal of bringing home more than 100 Riverside County residents who were placed in out-of-county IMDs or more restrictive settings. The program is designed with the ACT model at its base and incorporates Telecare's unique Recovery-Centered Clinical System
