As the Agency continues to assist people in need, we are gearing up to do even more!
On Tuesday, February 6th the San Luis Obispo (SLO) Board of Supervisors approved a contract with SMWG to staff and manage a Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) for the County. Although fundamentally similar to the CSU in Nevada County, the SLO CSU will have the ability to double its four-person capacity to eight, if needed. A couple of months from now the agency will celebrate three years of service to the County of San Luis Obispo as we have managed the County’s Mental Health Evaluation Team (MHET). In addition to the new CSU, we are developing a project with the County to locate Crisis Specialists in two Emergency Departments within the County in order to create more efficiency and enhanced service to the hospital systems, law enforcement and individuals in critical psychiatric need.
Our Tahoe City clinical team is working with Placer County in an effort to provide Psychiatry, Case Management and clinical services to people in the Carnelian Bay area. Key SMWG staff will be available on specific days to provide services out of the Placer County Children’s System of Care facility in Carnelian Bay. We are hoping to be able to assist more Tahoe area residents with this outreach effort. Our goal is to have details worked out and people in place within a month.
