RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Health Services Director, or designee, to execute on behalf of the County Novation Contract #74–358–11 with Contra Costa Crisis Center, a non-profit corporation, in an amount not to exceed $330,006, to provide Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) prevention and early intervention services through a twenty-four hour crisis line 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 $165,003.

FISCAL IMPACT:

This contract will result in budgeted expenditures of up to $330,006 and will be funded 100% by Mental Health Services Act reveneues. (Rate increase)

BACKGROUND:

This contract meets the social needs of County’s population by providing a nationally-certified 24-hour suicide prevention hotline that lowers the risk of suicide at a time when people are most vulnerable, enhances safety and connectedness for suicidal individuals, and builds a bridge to community resources for at-risk persons.




BACKGROUND: (CONT'D)

The County has contracted with this contractor since 2009 for such services. Most recently on September 24, 2019, the Board of Supervisors approved Novation Contract #74-358-10 with Contra Costa Crisis Center to provide MHSA prevention and early intervention services 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 Contract #74–358–11 will replace the automatic extension under the prior contract and allow the contractor to continue providing services through June 30, 2021.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If this contract is not approved, the County's efforts to provide suicide prevention hotline services to at-risk persons will be hindered.
