Intensive Case Management (ICM): Intensive outpatient mental health services are provided by a multidisciplinary team that consists of Mental Health Clinicians, Mental Health Workers/Aides, Psychiatric Technician, and Resource Specialist. The customized array of services provided are designed to prevent hospitalization, and assist individuals in attaining a life that does not revolve around their mental health diagnosis. The ICM Team also provides support and services to people living in any of the four Transitional Houses on the West Slope and one Transitional Houses in South Lake Tahoe.

Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT): AOT services provide for limited term, court-ordered outpatient mental health treatment for individuals who meet strict criteria as defined by State law. The individual must be 18 years of age or older, have a severe and chronic mental illness, and have a history of non-compliance with mental health treatment. Additionally, at least twice within the last 36 months, the individual must have been hospitalized due to their mental illness or in a mental health unit of a State or local correctional facility (excluding the most recent event), or the individual's mental illness has resulted in one or more acts of serious and violent behavior toward himself or herself or another, or threats, or attempts to cause serious physical harm to himself or herself or another within the last 48 months. Referrals may be made by family, household members, medical and mental health providers, community based organizations, hospitals, law enforcement, or a Superior Court judge. Individuals in the AOT program are provided with ICM-level services, however the program cannot require medications to be taken or involuntary hospitalizations.
