Mental Health and Developmentally Disabled Unit (CARES Program)


  • Reduce symptoms of psychiatric illness and recidivism

  • Support recovery and reduce involvement in criminal activity in a community setting

  • Improve coping skills and foster community integration

  • Successful completion of probation


The Mental Health and Developmentally Disabled (MH/DD) Unit staff at MTHSS, led by a Case Manager, works with clients referred from the County MH/DD Probation Department who are on active County probation with the County’s MH/DD unit. Case Managers provide more intense contact compared to general case managers but less contact than the intensive unit. Case Managers meet weekly with clients to provide support, link to services, track and monitor progress. Case Managers meet monthly with the Probation Unit officers to review each client’s progress and treatment services.


Clients are provided mental health treatment and linked to services that support recovery and reduce their involvement in criminal activity. The level of intensity of services and supports distinguishes these services. Rehabilitation and environmental support activities reduce the symptoms of psychiatric illness, build resilience and improve their quality of life and integration into the community.
