Project Scope

This Pay for Success project is designed to serve adults with severe mental illness who frequently utilize the County of Santa Clara’s emergency and inpatient psychiatric services. Telecare Corporation, the service provider for the project, will use an Assertive Community Treatment approach to provide comprehensive services, including behavioral health interventions and counseling, care coordination, supportive social services and connections to housing to at least 250 individuals with acute mental illness. The goal of the project is to improve participants’ wellness and reduce costly hospitalizations by providing care in community-based settings. This will be the first Pay for Success project focused on mental health outcomes with success payments generated through cashable savings.
