PARTNERSHIPS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Hays County and Deblin Health Concepts & Associates Forge Partnership to Enhance Mental Health Court Program

 

San Marcos, TX – In a landmark decision, the Hays County Commissioners Court has approved a $25,000 contract with Deblin Health Concepts & Associates to significantly enhance the mental health services provided by the Hays County Mental Health Court Program. This initiative, ratified on June 6, represents a pivotal advancement in the county's commitment to comprehensive mental health care for its adult residents.

 

Expanding Essential Services

 

Deblin Health Concepts & Associates is tasked with delivering Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) services, aimed at supporting a demographic that includes the unhoused, those grappling with severe and complex mental health and substance use issues, and individuals who previously fell outside the program's eligibility criteria due to its existing structure. The array of services encompasses:

  • Intensive case management

  • Regular psychiatric consultations

  • Nursing and medication management

  • Counseling sessions

 

These services are financed through the American Rescue Plan Act funds, ensuring that the most vulnerable populations receive the support and care they need.

 

Bridging the Gap in Mental Health Support

 

The Hays County Mental Health Court Program has faced challenges in adequately serving individuals with heightened needs due to resource constraints. This collaboration with Deblin Health Concepts & Associates will enable the program to broaden its reach, offering crucial support to more individuals requiring intensive care and intervention.

 

Efficiency and Impact at the Core

 

The partnership is anticipated to streamline the referral and admission processes, as highlighted by Mental Health Court Administrator Kaimi Mattila. The addition of Deblin Health Concepts' clinical staff will enhance the program's capacity to conduct diagnostic reviews more efficiently, thereby increasing the program's overall impact and reach.

 

A Cost-Effective Approach to Community Care

 

Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra emphasized the cost-effectiveness of this initiative, noting its potential to reduce the county's reliance on outsourced services. This strategy ensures that residents have access to high-quality mental health care within their community, contributing to the overall well-being and stability of Hays County.

 

A Promise of a Brighter Future

 

This partnership between Hays County and Deblin Health Concepts & Associates is a testament to a shared vision of a community where comprehensive mental health care is accessible to all. It marks a significant step towards a future where the mental health needs of the community are met with empathy, expertise, and effectiveness.
