RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Health Services Director, or designee, to execute on behalf of the County Contract #74-612-1 with Mental Health Systems, Inc., a non-profit corporation, in an amount not to exceed $1,050,375, to provide mental health services including outpatient treatment, assertive community treatment and crisis intervention for eligible adults in central Contra Costa County under the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) 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 $525,188.

FISCAL IMPACT:

This contract will result in budgeted expenditures of up to $1,050,375 and will be funded by 14% Federal Medi-Cal ($147,052), 70% MHSA ($735,263), and 16% Mental Health Realignment ($168,060) revenues.

BACKGROUND:

This contract meets the social needs of the County’s population by providing services for the MHSA Community Services and Supports Program component, including providing community-based services, personal services coordination, medication support, crisis intervention, and other mental health services to eligible adult clients in Contra Costa County.


BACKGROUND: (CONT'D)

The County has contracted with Mental Health Systems since 2015 for such services. Most recently on November 19, 2019, the Board of Supervisors approved Contract #74-612 with Mental Health Systems, Inc. for the provision of mental health support services to adults in central Contra Costa County for the period from November 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020, which included a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2020.

Approval of Novation Contract #74-612-1 will replace the automatic extension and allow the contractor to continue providing services through June 30, 2021.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If this contract is not approved, there will be fewer services provided to eligible adult clients in central Contra Costa County through the MHSA Community Services and Support Program.
