Through a contract with the Mental Health Services Oversight and
Accountability Commission, the California Institute for
Behavioral Health Solutions (CIBHS) is leading a statewide
project, directed by legislation, to engage counties, providers,
and stakeholders in an effort to establish consensus, and train
to, California statewide clinical assessment guidelines for
involuntary detainment (in various settings) that are
person-centered, family driven/inclusive, culturally responsive
and recovery oriented to improve the consumer experience.
The LPS Clinical Assessment Guidelines (CAG) represents a set of clinical assessment guidelines for persons involuntarily detained. These guidelines are intended to be recommendations for a structured recovery approach and are not presented as standards or requirements.
