PreTrial Services Program

BHRS, through MHSA, has expanded our current Dual Diagnosis Program to serve individuals who meet criteria for SMI and those with Mild to Moderate mental illness.  The program provides a clinician and Mental Health Worker (Case Manager) to provide services to a population of individuals pending criminal proceedings for minor offences who might suffer from a mental illness and/or co-occurring disorders.  BHRS staff provide a comprehensive assessment and provide services that meet the clients where they are at, and provide intensive services in order to facilitate an alternative service instead of being in jail awaiting court proceedings.  Services can include, assessment, therapy, collateral, case management, and rehabilitation services within the Dual Diagnosis model of recovery.
