Outpatient Mental Health Services Programs

The Department of Mental Health funds three important Service Programs provided at Step Up: Field Capable Clinical Services (FCCS), Full Service Partnership (FSP), and Therapeutic Rehabilitation Program (TRP). Step Up serves individuals 18-59 in both TAY and Adult programs.

Field Capable Clinical Services (FCCS) – TAY and Adult

FCCS provides comprehensive, community-based treatment for adults experiencing severe and persistent mental health issues. This intensive service coordination program targets individuals with an intended outcome of reducing the need for psychiatric hospitalization. FCCS is designed to provide highly individualized services in a team-based environment. Services are designed to be comprehensive and multi-disciplinary and are tailored to the needs of the client.

Full Service Partnership (FSP) TAY and Adult

The Full Service Partnership (FSP) is a program funded under Mental Health Services Act (Prop 63) specifically targeting individuals experiencing homelessness and a serious mental health issue. Step Up provides FSP intensive service coordination programs and support for adults and for Transitional Aged Youth (18-25). FSP services are available to individuals experiencing extended periods of homelessness, long-term institutionalization, multiple acute hospitalizations, or family dependence. Both FSP programs have specific criteria for enrollment based on an individual’s history, current level of functioning, and whether or nor they are accessing appropriate levels of mental health services. FSP guidelines are established by the County and State, and the members/staff ratio is 12:1.

Therapeutic Rehabilitation Program (TRP)

TRP provides general outpatient services, medication support, therapy, service coordination, and benefits establishment.  This is a non-MHSA (Prop 63) DMH county funded program located at Step Up’s main site.
