ACTS Juvenile Assessment Center in Hillsborough County has a preventative program known as The Olivia Project. Families in crisis are invited to come to the JAC and receive free services similar to what youth who have been brought in by law enforcement receive. To be eligible for this service, the youth must not have been arrested previously. This program is named after one of the first employees of the JAC, who still works there almost 25 years later. Topics covered include substance abuse, aggression, domestic violence and more. For more information about The Olivia Project, click here.
The Pre-Arrest Intercept Program (PIP) Central Diversion Center offers a single point of entry into the behavioral health system for assessments and appropriate placement of adult individuals experiencing a crisis. The PIP is designed to provide immediate assessment/evaluation and treatment, crisis counseling, case management linkage, and other wraparound services. Participants are engaged at the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office adjacent to booking where eligible participants may be linked to services. The program is a 24/7 pre-booking diversion program that includes an intensive case management team targeting those with more severe needs. This system ensures that people with mental illness can receive the treatment and services they need as an alternative to incarceration.
An ACTS clinician works with Tampa Family Health Center clinics to provide outpatient services for patients referred by a primary care physician. The goal is to focus on building a strong therapeutic relationship in primary care that is responsive to individuals’ needs and concerns and has access to the appropriate medical and behavioral health relevant skills and knowledge. The model supports the primary care provider in identifying and treating patients with behavioral health diagnoses and/or need for behavioral interventions. Behavioral health services include assessment, brief therapies, planning, linking, monitoring, advocacy, and outreach.
The ARRIS Program provides residential and therapeutic services to dependent adolescent females between the ages of 13-17. While in the program, youth attend public school, receive medical services along with clinical treatment, case management, life skills training, recreational, leisure and cultural opportunities.
