In FY2015/16, The Solano County Board of Supervisors and the California Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Committee (MHSOAC) approved the County’s Innovation Plan; The Interdisciplinary Collaboration and Cultural Transformation Model (ICCTM). Solano County has partnered with the U.C. Davis Center for Reducing Health Disparities (CRHD) to implement the ICCTM project.
ICCTM aims to increase culturally appropriate services for County-specific unserved and underserved populations with low mental health service utilization rates. The communities identified are Latino, Filipino, and LGBTQ.
The project also includes the creation of a curriculum using the National Enhanced Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Standards (CLAS) as the initial framework. CLAS will be adapted to specifically meet the needs of the Solano County region by engaging the identified local unserved and underserved communities to offer their perspective on culturally sensitive practices that should be integrated into the current local mental health system with the goal of increasing access amongst those populations.

Early Psychosis Learning Health Care Network (EP LHCN)
In December of 2018 Solano County, along with three other California counties (Los Angeles Orange, San Diego) and in collaboration with U.C. Davis Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (UCD BHCE) and One Mind, were approved for a 5-year Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Innovation Project to develop the infrastructure for a sustainable Early Psychosis (EP) Learning Health Care Network (LHCN) programs. The utility of which will be tested through a robust statewide evaluation. This project, led by U.C. Davis in partnership with U.C. San Francisco, U.C. San Diego, University of Calgary and a number of California counties, will bring consumer-level data to the clinician's fingertips, allow programs to learn from each other, and position the state to participate in the development of a national network to inform and improve care for individuals with early psychosis across the United States. The evaluation would assess the impact of the LHCN on consumer- and program-level metrics, as well as utilization and cost rats of EP programs. This will allow counties to adjust their programs based on lessons learned through multiple research approaches. The EP LHCN will leverage technology and the findings will be used at a statewide level to guide EP programs in utilizing outcome-based models to treat consumers.
