County Mental Health Triage Services

Adult and Transition Age Youth (TAY) Physical and Behavioral Health Mobile Crisis Triage (P/B MCT)

This Physical and Behavioral Health Mobile Crisis Triage (P/B MCT) will provide appropriate behavioral health crisis intervention and assessment in the community to those experiencing a mental health crisis, with the added benefit of providing physical health care triage services. The addition of a nurse will provide a smoother transition into the Psychiatric Health Facility or Crisis Residential Facility.  In many instances the nurse will be able to provide needed medical clearance and thereby help avoid an unnecessary visit to the emergency department for someone in crisis. In addition, the nurse will help with any imminent physical health care needs, provide diagnostic evaluation of any physical co-morbidities that are exacerbating presenting symptoms and behaviors.  The nurse will also help provide quick linkage to primary care services, also offer valuable physical health follow up services for up to 60 days post crisis and assist with any urgent crisis needs in the behavioral health clinic.
MCT teams also provide follow-up services for those individuals not requiring psychiatric hospitalization.  Follow-up services include referrals and linkages to various county and community resources, advocacy, case management, and brief supportive therapy.  

MCT Services are available Monday - Friday, 8:00 am – 10:00 pm and Saturday, 9:30 am – 7:00 pm.

Service Requests: Community members can request services directly by calling Placer County Intake at 916.787.8860 or toll-free 888.886.5401. Law enforcement partners can also request P/B MCT support.

Family Mobile Team

The Family Mobile Team (FMT) responds to family and youth crises in the community with Roseville patrol officers or immediately after the scene is secured. They also collaborate with the school resource officers affiliated with Roseville Police and respond to the school campuses if needed. The team also provides follow-up support and brief case management to families and youth encountered by the team or at the request of Roseville police.

The team closely collaborates with their Children’s System of Care (CSOC) colleagues in Child Welfare Services and Children’s Mental health, should those agencies be already involved with the family, and assist in a smooth transition for those youth and families interested and eligible for on-going mental health services provided by CSOC if not already engaged.

FMT is co-located with the Roseville Police Department to facilitate collaboration. Roseville PD is centrally located in the region, so response times can be facilitated to anywhere in the locale.

The FMT has two mini- teams consisting of the practitioner and Parent/Family Partner so that one team can be available to respond to crises, while the other team is completing follow-up support to the youth and/or family. The Youth Advocate has a critical role in follow-up services with youth involved in crises to connect with youth on school campuses or after school.

The team will be operational from 9:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. seven days a week.

Service Requests: Roseville Police Department Dispatch Only

School/County Collaborative
This is a joint project, between Placer County Office of Education and Placer County Children’s System of Care, in collaboration with Roseville Joint Union High School District and Roseville City School District.  The intent is to deepen the existing county-wide education, mental health, child welfare, probation, and community partnerships.  Outcomes from this project will primarily focus on providing increased and efficient services to students who are at-risk/currently experiencing mental health needs, although school-wide and county-wide outcomes will be measured.
School-based mental health staff will provide a continuum of integrated mental health services at Roseville High School, Woodcreek High School, Buljan Middle School, Cooley Middle School, Sargeant Elementary School and Spanger Elementary School.  Staff will include Mental Health Specialists (1 FTE for each high school and middle school; 0.5 FTE for each elementary school) and a Family/Youth/Community Liaison (someone with lived experience utilizing the county’s systems) for each school, a Project Coordinator and the County Clinical Supervisor.
The Mental Health Specialists and Family Liaisons will form a team, along with existing school-based mental health professionals (e.g. school counselors, school social workers, school psychologists), to create 6 school-based Wellness Centers/Campuses. While many services may be accessed in group and individual settings, there is an emphasis on school wide services. School staff will have opportunities for trainings, support and education to increase their capacity to meet the needs of students with mental health needs.
Service Requests: For enrolled students in these schools, services can be requested from any school employee

Walk-In Services: Available for enrolled students
