Our Outreach and Engagement Services program provides education, assessment, short-term case management, educational and life skills classes; support groups, transportation assistance and in-person outreach to two specific groups here in Orange County:
Residents of all ages and populations who are at risk of developing a mental illness or who are displaying early signs of emotional, behavioral, or mental instability or co-occurring substance abuse disorders. Among this group, the program seeks to prevent the development of behavioral health conditions and intervene early in their manifestation to reduce risk factors/stressors and prevent conditions from getting worse. While assisting participants in building skills, the program provides support and referrals/linkages to appropriate community resources.
