Proposed Investment: $3,732,000
Description: The Care Compact is a project of the Douglas County Mental Health Initiative that formally links existing care coordination service providers through a streamlined network to serve vulnerable individuals with complex mental health, substance use disorder, and intellectual and developmental disability needs. The Care Compact partner organizations are as follows: Douglas County Administration (The Care Compact Navigator), Douglas County Department of Human Services, Developmental Pathways, Rocky Mountain Human Services, the Community Response Teams, Signal Behavioral Health Network, The Rock Church, Centura Health, HealthONE, All Health Network, Colorado Access, and Julota. By connecting these systems of care, the Care Compact reduces the duplication of services, decreases reliance on emergency and acute care services, reduces criminal justice involvement, removes barriers to care and improves access, prevents gaps in treatment, and streamlines information sharing. With additional funding, TCC can help the network build capacity to serve more Douglas County residents needing enhanced support in meeting their whole-person health needs.
