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) Toolkit, composed of six (6) modules, is designed to provide technical support for the implementation of the CAG for Involuntarily Detained Persons. The toolkit provides:
A response to the need for improved coordination in a complex system of care
A recovery approach through comprehensive strategies
Recommendations for improved collaboration, communication, and cooperation between inpatient services and the various other systems of service.
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.
