Behavioral Health Outreach and Engagement (BOE)

1904 Richland Avenue, Bldg F
Ceres, CA 95307
Telephone: (209) 525-7444
Program Description:  BOE provides outreach and engagement to unserved/underserved individuals who may need specialty mental health services and are identified as not currently receiving needed care or only receiving episodic or crisis mental health services. BOE services include proactive outreach services in community settings with the aim of building trusting relationships, implementing coordinated individualized intervention plans, and connecting individuals directly to treatment and supportive services. The BOE Program will also include the Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) and an integrated partnership with the Community Assessment, Response, and Engagement (CARE) programs. These two program services align with the outreach and engagement strategy and often share the same target population with local law enforcement and other key outreach partners.

  • AOT program Description: A civil court-ordered treatment for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness who meet strict legal criteria. Often, these individuals experience severe mental health symptoms which impact their ability to recognize the need for treatment. For more information: (link to AOT page)
  • CARE is a multidisciplinary team of mental health, criminal justice, and other service providers who facilitate, provide, and share responsibilities of assessment coordination and treatment services to appropriately meet the complex mental, physical, and social needs of the targeted population.

The Department has recommended establishing a standard Core Treatment Model (CTM) for mental health services. Services will be provided in Behavioral Health Services Teams (BHSTs) which will consist of 14-15 staff. For clients with higher treatment needs, the staff to client ratio will be lower to allow staff more time to provide a higher number of services per client (Assertive Community Treatment (ACT). For clients with lower needs, the caseloads will be higher given that the clients need less-intensive services. (Intensive Community Supports ICS) The levels of care are outlined below.

  • ACT: ACT services are provided in community settings on a day-today basis, and with 24/7 crisis intervention and support. Unique to the ACT is a team approach that is a partnership between mental health staff and the clients
  • ICS: ICS levels of service include the core treatment services and are provided in outpatient settings. Clients at this level of care require intensive treatment services weekly, but not 24/7 or day-to-day interventions
  • Wellness (Adults Only): Wellness level of care serves as a step down from ACT and ICS levels and serves clients who require low intensity and minimal support Clients at this level will most likely able to manage their day-to-day affairs with intermittent support but require ongoing medication support
  • Full Service Partnerships (FSP) FSP programs provide all 3 levels of care. The levels of care allow clients to progress through the recovery process with support from a trusted mental health treatment team. By integrating levels of care in a team, the client can access higher or lower levels of services, while maintaining the valuable therapeutic relationship within a team that uniquely understands the client’s mental health needs and has developed a trusted relationship.
