RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Health Services Director, or designee, to execute on behalf of the County Novation Interagency Agreement #74-371-13 with Mt. Diablo Unified School District, a government agency, in an amount not to exceed $6,029,569, to provide school-based mental health services to Seriously Emotionally Disturbed (SED) students in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District for the period from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, which includes a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2021, in an amount not to exceed $2,880,387.

FISCAL IMPACT:

This contract will result in budgeted expenditures of up to $6,029,569 and will be funded by 48% Federal Medi-Cal ($2,894,193), 48% Mental Health Realignment ($2,894,193), and 4% Mt. Diablo Unified School District ($241,183) revenues. (Rate increase)


BACKGROUND:

This contract meets the social needs of County’s population by providing school and community based mental health services, including assessments; individual, group and family therapy; medication support; case management; outreach; and crisis intervention services for children at Sunrise School, Fair Oaks Elementary and Olympic and Mt. Diablo High School, and their families. Expected program outcomes include an increase in positive social and emotional development as measured by the Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS).

On September 10, 2019, the Board of Supervisors approved Novation Interagency Agreement #74-371-11, as amended by Amendment Agreement #74-371-12, with Mt. Diablo Unified School District for the provision of school-based mental health services to SED students for the period from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020, which included a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2020.

Approval of Novation Interagency Agreement #74-371-13 replaces the automatic extension and will allow the contractor to continue providing services through June 30, 2021.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If this contract is not approved, SED children will have reduced access to treatment services and may require placement at higher level of care, including hospitalization or residential care in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District.

CHILDREN'S IMPACT STATEMENT:

The recommendation supports one or more of the following children's outcomes: (1) Children Ready for and Succeeding in School; (4) Families that are Safe, Stable and Nurturing; and (5) Communities that are Safe and Provide a High Quality of Life for Children and Families.
