Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) Programs Discussed at MHSOAC Services Committee Feb. 11, RAND Report Shows Efforts Make a Difference

The Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) Services Committee is scheduled to meet on Wednesday February 11, 2015 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

The Services Committee is tasked with making recommendations regarding the quality of Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) programs and services. As the MHSOAC develops key Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) regulations, the Committee is responsible for adherence of services to regulatory guidelines, identifying relevant implementation issues, and assuring consistency of reporting for evaluation.

The PEI regulations move California toward a proactive, integrated response to helping people with mental illness before their symptoms are acute.

The meeting will take place at the MHSOAC offices, 1325 J Street, Suite 1700, Sacramento, CA.

The Call-in Number is 866-810-5695 and the access Code is 9546397

In other news about PEI programs, CalMHSA’s RAND report shows that statewide initiatives are “reaching targeted California populations, reducing mental illness stigma, increasing the number of Californians with the skills to intervene with and refer individuals with mental health challenges, and disseminating evidence-based practices through online resources and strategic collaborations.”
