Behavioral Health Treatment Court (BHTC)

Behavioral Health Treatment Court (BHTC)

 

The San Luis Obispo BHTC was established to more effectively address the increasing number of mentally ill defendants cycling through the courts and jails by connecting these individuals with community treatment services and helping to find appropriate dispositions for the criminal charges by considering the defendant’s mental illness and the seriousness of the offense. BHTC is a collaboration or the Superior Court, office of the Public Defender (PD), Office of the District Attorney (DA), Sheriff’s Department, the San Luis Obispo County Behavioral Health Department, and the Probation Department.

A TMHA Social Worker partners with the San Luis Obispo Police Department to have law enforcement and mental health support side-by-side in the field. The team members respond to calls involving mental health issues and look to provide immediate support options to the clients in crisis.  Case management, therapy, and referrals to long-term supports (such as housing, employment, and primary health screening) may all be part of what this team provides.
