Full Service Partnership / Medication Clinic
Full Service Partnership [FSP] for Older Adults: The FSP is a Mental Health Service Act [MHSA] funded intensive case management program. FSP’s are intended to provide services to California’s most vulnerable mental ill consumers. Case loads are smaller than traditional case management programs so that the staff can have more direct service time to spend with these consumers. We started serving clients in October 2010. The program is staffed by four Case Managers, two RNs, one Assistant Case Manager, one Program Director and 16 hours a week of psychiatry. The program serves 44 clients.
The medication clinic is part of the FSP stream of services and also funded by MHSA. The clinic is housed at 908 Tuolumne and is funded to serve 18 older adults in the FSP. The clinic is staffed by one registered nurse and one psychiatrist. Services are provided in the office or field based. The psychiatrist manages the prescriber services for these client’s psychotropic medications and the RN assists in the medication management and providing other medical services to our older adults in the FSP. Services began December 1st, 2010.
