The mental health system of care can be complicated – which is why BACS has started the Sacramento Crisis Navigation Program (CNP). We are supporting community members with behavioral health needs who are in the middle of a crisis, at the emergency room, by being side-by-side to help them navigate available resources to find ongoing services and stability.
Some of the people we serve may have been through this cycle before (from emergency room to a referral to ongoing behavioral health services), but without the warm handoff and individualized coordination they slipped through the cracks. BACS Care Coordinators are here to fill that gap and provide a necessary support to these members of our community and help them with behavioral health, housing, and other urgent life needs. Our team is made up of peers, people with lived experience of these same crises, who can connect with clients “where they are at.”
CNP is made possible by MHSA funding, Sacramento County, and partnership with eight hospitals across Sacramento County.
