Intensive Mental Health Services

TMHA operates a number of programs that provide our clients with 24/7 services, team-based response, case management and/or licensed clinical treatment. All of these programs require a referral from San Luis Obispo County Behavioral Health Services or County of Santa Barbara Department of Behavioral Wellness.

San Luis Obispo County

Intensive Community Services

San Luis Obispo County Full Service Partnership (FSP) Program is a collection of MHSA funded Teams that provide intensive community-based wrap around services to help people in recovery live independently. Program participants are assisted in their efforts to gain the skills needed to make choices that reflect their own values, preferences, and goals; supports are developed to meet each person's needs and to empower each individual to attain their highest level of independence possible.

Our Adult FSP Teams (one in North County and one in SLO/South County) are each made up of two mental health professionals (one with the Behavioral Health Department and one with TMHA) who work in partnership with the clients they serve to explore individual mental health wellness and recovery using a “whatever it takes” brand of case management.

Santa Barbara County

Lompoc ACT is an assertive community treatment model-based program in Lompoc. As an ACT program with a joint County/TMHA hired multi-disciplinary staff operating as a team, Lompoc ACT engages with adults, older adults and transitional age youth with serious and persistent mental illness. Rather than brokering services, the Lompoc ACT team provides treatment, support and rehabilitation services to 100 adults in the community with a "whatever it takes" 24/7/365 day approach.

A less-intensive program than the ACT model above, Santa Maria Supportive Community Services supports 115 adults and older adults with severe and persistent mental illness to recover, and live independently. The team is available 24/7, 365 days a year and works alongside each client in the community to achieve their treatment goals. The intensive, multidisciplinary treatment team is run by a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate and includes a Behavioral Wellness medication provider, 1 lead clinician, 2 med support staff, 3 rehab specialists, and 3 clinical rehab specialists.
