Current Innovation Project: 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. Since the approval of the project, Stanislaus, Napa and Sonoma counties have joined. 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 rates 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.

Previous Innovation Project (ended June 2021): Interdisciplinary Collaboration and Cultural Transformation Model (ICCTM) Innovation Project
Over the last 5 years SCBH has been implementing the Interdisciplinary Collaboration and Cultural Transformation Model (ICCTM), a multi-phased Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Innovation Project. The ICCTM Project was delivered in partnership between the SCBH, U.C. Davis Center for Reducing Health Disparities (CRHD); three local community-based organizations (CBO): Rio Vista CARE, Fighting Back Partnership, and Solano Pride Center, and most importantly the community in Solano County. The goal of the ICCTM Project was to implement strategies to increase access and utilization of services for County-specific un-served and underserved populations that have historically been shown to have low mental health services utilization rates throughout Solano County: the Latino, Filipino-American, and LGBTQ+ communities.
Through the ICCTM Project, 51 multi-sector partners received a Solano-specific training that incorporated the national Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards, findings form a community health assessment conducted by CRHD during the first year of the Project and community engagement practices. These training participants were tasked with developing community-defined quality improvement (QI) Action Plans geared to improve access for the three communities of focus. Ultimately ten (10) QI Action Plans were developed by training participants and were focused on various strategies, including workforce development, community outreach, and training.
SCBH is pleased to share with the community The Solano County Interdisciplinary Collaboration and Cultural Transformation Model (ICCTM) Innovation Project: Final Evaluation Report, which summarizes the ICCTM Project, including the outcomes and the progress that has been made over the course of the project.
