2 Programs & Services Community Support Services, Inc. serves as the premiere non-profit mental healthcare provider for Summit County, Ohio and for surrounding communities. The agency offers a wide variety of programming to provide effective treatment and opportunities for recovery to residents with severe and persistent mental illnesses. Following are brief descriptions of the many services the agency delivers. ACT Services CPST Counseling Assertive Community Treatment involves weekly, or even daily, treatment interventions to assist clients in achieving/maintaining independent living. ACT Services are provided by the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Team and by the Intensive Treatment Team (ITT) to clients with co-occurring mental health and physical health issues; and by the SAMI PACT Team to clients with co-occurring substance use and mental health issues. Community Psychiatric Supportive Treatment is an essential service provided to almost all of the agency s clients. Community Rehabilitation Specialists work with clients to develop Individualized Service Plans, including interventions such as daily living skills training, resource acquisition, medication management, advocacy and supportive contacts, etc. - coordinating care and services to achieve the most effective outcomes. Counseling includes both individual and group sessions led by licensed clinicians to provide more in-depth and focused attention on unique issues. Counseling often is provided over a shorter term to address temporal concerns and crises. Crisis Intervention Crisis Intervention (CIT) staff responds to requests for immediate intervention for individuals who may be experiencing acute mental health symptoms. Sheriff s Deputies and Police Officers from most local municipalities have been trained in Crisis Intervention. The CIT staff works with deputies and police personnel to provide interventions that promote mental health treatment as a diversion from the criminal justice system. Engagement Services Engagement Services provides Outreach CPST using various resources to locate and engage clients who have not consistently participated in treatment. Once re-engaged, clients learn to minimize treatment barriers in order to transition to traditional CPST and psychiatry services. Forensic/MH Ct ITS HO Team Intake Forensic & Mental Health Court teams serve clients involved with the criminal justice system. Forensic services are for individuals deemed Incompetent to Stand Trial or Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity. The team remains involved throughout clients inpatient competency restoration or during Conditional Release. Mental Health Court is a specialized program that assists individuals facing qualifying misdemeanor charges in Akron Municipal Court. Intensive Treatment Services offers an array of recovery-based therapies including group sessions that provide psycho-education and promote the development of social skills, functional abilities, coping mechanisms, and other tools that enhance independence. Homeless Outreach is a CPST team that identifies and engages homeless persons who may benefit from mental health treatment. The HO Team works with clients until they are ready to transition to traditional teams or until they are referred to or engaged in other treatment. Intake workers conduct Clinical Evaluation/Assessment interviews with persons referred for public mental health treatment. Intake workers determine a person s eligibility to receive services at either Community Support Services, Inc. or at Portage Path Behavioral Health and help new clients set their initial appointments at the appropriate agency.

4 PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT & COMPLIANCE COMMITTEE: The Performance Improvement and Compliance (PIC) Committee monitored adherence to the 20 Performance Improvement (PI) Plan, including indicators designed to address Ohio Department of Mental Health (ODMH) requirements, and standards established by both the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Additionally, the 20 PI Plan included indicators related to agency policies and procedures and to specific goals of programs or services. The PIC Charter outlines the responsibility of the PIC Committee to provide oversight to agency committees and tasks groups. The PIC Committee reports to the Program Planning & Evaluation Committee of the Board of Directors for Community Support Services, Inc. As continuous improvement is a foundation of the agency, the PIC Committee regularly assesses its processes and seeks opportunities to enhance the performance improvement and compliance functions of the committee. The recently established Contracts & Risk Management Committee and the Credentialing Committee began to identify their respective objectives. Additionally, the Recovery Advisory Council began to meet on a regular basis in an effort to provide clients and family members an opportunity to be involved in the Performance Improvement process. The Performance Improvement Program would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to members who served on standing committees during 20: Agnes Andrasak Vicki Arnold Deborah Roberson Jim Bournival Kay Bowman Sue Bussey Janine Casey Janet Catalano Terry Dalton Crystal Dunivant Carol Eddy Renee Elder Suzanne Frohme Jon Garey Jessica Gilger Marianne Goldyn Marva Grant Ann Grueneberg Kim Hartman, RN Patricia Henderson Rob Hermanowski Dorothea Hilson Tammie Jackson Cindy Johnson, RN Joyce Johnston Jan Jones Perry Jordan Jim Karpawich, PhD Ricka Laramore Ragan Leff Steve Maddox Kimberly Maluke Kim Meals Jayne Miner, RN Penny Moore Tim Mullender Linda F.R.

5 CLIENT CARE MONITORING COMMITTEE: The Client Care Monitoring (CCM) Committee heard eleven challenging cases during 20, and thirty-nine deaths were reported. One Death Investigation was requested and recently completed. CCM recommended a procedure change when clients present at Portage Path Psychiatric Emergency Services (PES) and are not admitted to the Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU). The procedure advises the staff to call the Administrator On-Call (AOC) and discuss the situation. The AOC may then contact PES directly to advocate that the client be admitted or, at least, observed for a period of time. CCM recommended that the new security contract address how security guards handle clients with weapons. Staff had expressed concern about their own and visitor safety because the practice had been to return weapons to clients upon their (evident) departure from agency grounds. Security guards are now retaining all confiscated weapons and turning them over to the Facilities Director. Presentations by staff greatly improved in 20 due to Supervisors providing additional assistance to their staff, but CCM was under-utilized this year. The Performance Improvement Program will develop ways to ensure that challenging cases are presented at CCM so this valuable clinical resource is used appropriately. Supervisors will be reminded about the benefits and use of CCM at a January Supervisors meeting, and they will be encouraged to consider CCM when discussing difficult cases with their staff.

A tool to monitor contracts was developed and is currently being used as a living document. Additionally, it was decided outside of the committee, to scan contracts to assure that all contracts are documented. This seems to be working well and will be continued moving forward. Contracts are still being reviewed and approved as needed albeit the committee is not meeting regularly. Development of C&RM protocols have not occurred as expected but will be a priority in 2012 so as to address risks within the organization as they relate to operations. CREDENTIALING The Credentialing Committee redefined its processes for awarding privileges to independently licensed staff, adopting a widely used standardized application through the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH). The committee implemented a process to ensure that disclosure statements were retained on file for appropriately licensed staff. The PIC Committee appointed Credentialing with direct oversight of the agency s Peer Review processes, and as such, the committee approved a refined process for the completion of CPST Peer Review.

Ongoing programs and events include the Supervisory Discretionary Fund, the Executive Council BBQ, a Halloween Party, a Thanksgiving Luncheon, and a Holiday Dinner Party. Members of the committee recognized that, although events were well received throughout the year, the committee had begun to take on the identity of an events-planning group. Moving forward into 2012, the members plan to redirect their focus on program-related, broader recognition efforts. RECOVERY ADVISORY COUNCIL In 20, the agency developed the Recovery Advisory Council. Clients, family members, and other support persons were encouraged to join the Recovery Advisory Council in order to provide a line of communication between these stakeholders and the agency s administration.

RESEARCH, OUTCOMES & COMPLIANCE COMMITTEE: The Research, Outcomes & Compliance Committee met four times during 20 to monitor compliance to agency standards and PI Plan Indicators.

Additionally, indicators for the Counseling and Crisis Intervention programs were developed and approved. Five (5) research proposals were reviewed. Four (4) were approved with the fifth still under consideration pending receipt of additional information.
