Mental Health Assessments

Assessments for non-crisis intensive Mental Health Services are provided by Masters-level professional clinicians in all geographic areas of Placer County, including Auburn, Roseville, Lincoln, and King’s Beach.  Self-referred individuals or families will either have an appointment scheduled with the Managed Care Unit, with Sierra Mental Wellness Group (an organizational provider), an MFT or LCSW in the Placer County Network, or they will be linked to another appropriate community or agency provider depending on needs and insurance coverage.

Wraparound Services

Wraparound is an intensive in-home support service to families in Placer County where children are at risk of out-of-home placement or they have been put in placement and cannot return home successfully without extra support. The program uses the 10 principles of Wraparound, and focuses on building upon family and individual strengths to reach successful outcomes.

Crises Services

Teams or community contractors have been certified to assess children and youth who may be a danger to self, danger to others, or disabled due to a mental disorder. These staff then consult with medical doctors who have the authority to admit children to certified or licensed psychiatric facilities to ensure safety. 

Therapeutic Behavioral Services - (TBS)

Specially trained family support counselors and other professional staff will provide one-on-one assessment and intervention services to children whose behaviors put them at risk for school or placement failure.  These intensive services are individualized to meet the unique needs of each child. TBS has strict eligibility requirements.

Inpatient Services

Placer currently has contracts with Child and Adolescent facilities in the region.  Placer ensures indigent, under insured, as well as Medi-Cal youth have access to inpatient care.  CSOC provides immediate case management services in many cases.

Outpatient  Services

After each assessment is completed, children requiring less intensive mental health services will be referred into the Children’s System of Care (CSOC), to a group therapy group, or to one of 100 certified network providers for individual or group therapy. If more intensive outpatient services are deemed clinically appropriate, a referral to a family support counselor, TBS, or Wraparound may be made. A supervisor, who screens the referral for level of intensity, and medical necessity, makes this determination. Psychiatric evaluation and medication monitoring is also available through an internal CSOC psychiatrist and through referral to Chapa De Indian Health Program, Inc.
