Components of TCLI

  • In-reach: Certified Peer Specialists will go into facilities and build relationships with individuals to discuss community-based mental health services and potential housing resources.
  • Diversion: Referral Screening Verification Process (RSVP) is a screening tool used prior to any admission into an Adult Care Home to determine if the individual has a mental illness.
  • Transition planning: Once an individual is identified by In-reach as interested in community-based mental health or housing services, then they are assigned to a Transition Coordinator. The Transition Coordinator helps develop a plan to transition an individual into the community.
