Full-Service Partnerships

Full Service Partnership (FSP) programs are recovery-oriented, comprehensive services for people who are unhoused or at risk of becoming unhoused, have a severe mental illness, often have a history of contact with the criminal justice system, and have had multiple hospitalizations. Because FSPs are implemented differently by each county, developing metrics for data and definitions is necessary for effectiveness. CalMHSA’s Multi-County FSP Innovation Project seeks to develop a consistent data-driven strategy that gives counties greater access to data for use in enhancing FSP services and outcomes.

FSP developed from the Community Service Support MHSA component, in which funding is used to provide direct services to children and/or young people with serious emotional disturbances, as well as adults and older individuals with serious mental illness. Through community-based organizations and other direct service agencies, counties organize and provide a comprehensive spectrum of community services so that clients can achieve their goals.

CalMHSA works with a subcontractor to collaborate with 10 counties and clearly define admission and graduation criteria, as well as gather required data. Counties use the combined resources and shared knowledge of a cohort model to deliver the most effective FSP programs and, ultimately, shift the way mental health services are delivered.
