2 Dallas County Behavioral Health Leadership Team Meeting Notes Thursday, June 13, 2013 Welcome and Call to Order, Commissioner Price: The meeting was called to order by Commissioner John Wiley Price at 9:34 AM. Review/Approval of Minutes: The minutes from the BHLT meeting held on May 9, 2013 were made a part of the packet. There was a motion made to accept the minutes as printed. The motion was seconded and approved Waiver and DSRIP Project Update: Ron Stretcher reported that the notes from the June 4, 2013 Crisis Services Project Governance Committee were made a part of the packet. The two staff positions have been posted and interviews will be conducted in the next couple of weeks. Mr. Stretcher stated that the committee is going through an intense discovery process. Several meetings have been conducted that have been quite informative. The meetings have been with the Public Defender s (PD s) Office, Metrocare, and the City of Dallas s Crisis Intervention Unit. A site visit was made to the City Detention Center (CDC) which was also very enlightening. There have also been a number of takeaways from these meetings, such as the use of personal recognizance (PR) bonds through the PD s Office to expedite the release of certain mentally ill defendants to get them into services quicker. There is also potential to utilize data currently being collected by the Crisis Intervention Unit to identify individuals that have been apprehended by a peace officer without a warrant (APOWW). Mr. Stretcher indicated that the date to initiate services may be closer to the end of July as opposed to July first. However, he is encouraged with the progress being made through discovery, development of service contracts, and the upcoming staff interviews. Scott Black and Preston Looper echoed Mr. Stretcher s comments. Commissioner Price raised some concerns about how the PR bonds might affect the show rate to court. Paul Blocker, Assistant Chief Public Defender, stated that in his experience, individuals receiving a mental health conditional release have a pretty good record of returning to court and usually have a caseworker who can get them back to court if for some reason they fail to appear when scheduled. Judge Kristin Wade agreed that there is a need for more education among the judges, but believes the use of the PR bond to be a good tool to get incarcerated consumers into services more expeditiously. She is willing to add this concern to the agenda for the next Misdemeanor Judge s meeting. Commissioner Price suggested that the PD s Office and the District Attorney s Office draft a briefing to Commissioners Court highlighting the impact and advantages of receiving the additional mental health staff to their departments. He also asked Duane Steele to create a contact list for the BHLT members and attendees. Page 2 Behavioral Health Leadership Team Minutes from June 13, 2013 Page 1 of 3

3 Mr. Stretcher also reported that an Initial Review letter was received from CMS on May 23, The crisis services project was approved with no lowering of the valuation and nothing that needed correcting or revising. There are also continued efforts to access additional 1115 Waiver funds. The initial IGT will be transferred in the next two weeks. Legislative Update: Janie Metzinger gave an update on the wrap-up of the 83 rd Legislative Session. She reported that the session ended this past week and 67 of the 200 or so bills being watched passed. The Governor s deadline to sign bills is Monday June 17, There were approximately 10 bills that didn t pass where the language used in those bills was amended to a bill that was moving. A number of the most watched bills did pass and many thanks were extended to the local Senators and Representatives for their support. Ms. Metzinger listed several bills that did pass and will prepare a list to be distributed to the committee once the Governor has signed or vetoed those sent to his office. Special thanks were extended to Senator Bob Deuell for allowing a number of dead bills to be amended to his bill. Commissioner Price strongly suggested that a letter to be drafted to the local Senators and Representatives thanking them for their support. There was additional discussion about HB2625 which focuses on diagnosis expansion. Dr. Adam Brenner suggested that discussions begin in regard to how these additional diagnoses will be addressed by the system. Commissioner Daniel inquired as to if there were outstanding issues that will be addressed during the special session. Ms. Metzinger replied that there is some concern that half of the rainy day fund will be allocated to transportation. Recommendations for BHLT Action: Approval of the Crisis Services Project Charter Ron Stretcher directed the committee s attention to the resolution located on page 19 of the packet, recommending the BHLT s endorsement of the charter for the Crisis Services Project (CSP) Governance Committee. Tom Collins suggested an amendment to the charter by adding a representative from the existing acute crisis system to the membership roster of the CSP Governance Committee. A motion was made to endorse the CSP Governance Committee Charter with the amendment to add a representative for the acute crisis system to the membership roster of the CSP Governance Committee. The motion was seconded, and approved. Reports from and Charges to BHLT Committees: Clinical Operations Team Mary Ann Niles from Green Oaks Hospital reported that the Clinical Operations Team met on June 5, A large focus of discussion was surrounding a population of individuals that are frequently cycling through the ERs, jails, etc. These individuals are not typically in need of acute care, but have frequent encounters with law enforcement and are therefore frequently brought in on an APOWW for evaluation. Many of these individuals are homeless. She added that Mr. Stretcher offered an overview of the Dallas County Crisis Services Project and it was apparent that this might be just the project to help address this population. Due to there being no one to represent child and adolescent services, the topic of children beginning to frequent the ERs will be addressed at the next meeting. During the next Clinical Operations Team meeting there will be continued discussion regarding factors impacting gaps in Page 3 Behavioral Health Leadership Team Minutes from June 13, 2013 Page 2 of 3

4 coordination of care between hospitals, outpatient providers, and community organizations, as well as the difficultly in placing homeless women who have been victims of interpersonal or sexual violence in local domestic violence shelters. BHSC Judge Wade reported that the Behavioral Health Steering Committee (BHSC) has continued to meet monthly. There was a presentation last month from a local Christian based service provider TORI, that was very informative. The committee members continue to provide their organizations statistics which help to ensure that the funding received from the Texas Correctional Office on Offenders with Medical or Mental Impairments (TCOOMMI) is not jeopardized. Commissioner Price commented, You can t expect what you don t inspect. Kudos were extended to Judge Wade for her leadership with the BHSC. NTBHA Update: Alex Smith reported that NTBHA is continuing to work with ValueOptions, the County, and Parkland Hospital to explore options to gain access to additional 1115 waiver funds. There continue to be obstacles in the way of gaining this access. Mr. Smith stated that NTBHA is being required by DSHS to fill out a needs assessment which looks more like a request for proposal (RFP) than an assessment. This is required to be completed within the next two weeks. Public Comments: Tom Collins introduced Meera Rao-Bette who has rejoined the Green Oaks Hospital team. Meera Rao-Bette gave a brief overview of her experience and background and expressed her gratitude for the warm welcome. Commissioner Daniel expressed her deepest respect and appreciation for the BHLT and marveled at the level of collaboration and cooperation that is gained as a result of these meetings. Commissioner Price gave his customary thank you from those that are unable to extend their thanks. Joe Powell with the Association of Persons Affected by Addiction (APAA) thanked the Commissioners for being allowed to speak before Commissioners Court recently. Mr. Powell stated that APAA is working with the Federal Government to get more peer coordinators, and research data collection software that will help to better track their interaction with consumers. Tom Collins agreed that statistical data is a critical component missing from the services APAA provides and stated that it would be very beneficial to collect this data. Adjournment: A motion was made, seconded and approved to adjourn the meeting at 10:30 AM. Page 4 Behavioral Health Leadership Team Minutes from June 13, 2013 Page 3 of 3

15 Behavioral Health Steering Committee Thursday June 20, 2013 Minutes for June 20, 8:34 am Judge Kristen Wade opened the meeting; introductions were made and last month s minutes were approved. Patrick Jones will advise us of the date/time for the next jail tour. If you are interested in signing up for the next tour, contact Judge Wade at or Dr. Judith Hunter, Metrocare, provided detailed information regarding the changes to the DSM. The changes in the DSM V are not expected to affect the referrals and/or treatment regime of Northstar clients.

A work group is needed for the pilot; Lynn Richardson and Sheriff Lupe Valdez have agreed to be apart of the work group. Anyone interested in being in the work group may contact Duane Steele. Lynn Richardson addressed continued concern that the jail may be charging defendants for medical kites. A discussion regarding such concern will occur at the next BHSC meeting Waiver Meetings for the 1115 Waiver will be the 1 st Tuesday of every month. Interviews for positions will occur at the end of June. The projected start date is July 1 st, Judge Wade referred the committee to the Mental Health report on page 3 of the handout and noted the great job by Cindy Stormer on the informative mental health overview. If anyone would like a copy of the report, please contact Cindy at Gerald Crumpton, Probation, discussed concerns that CATS/Probation is not getting the appropriate number of referrals. Criteria for the number of people served have to be met in order to ensure TCOOMMI funding. Various departments have agreed to look at their caseload and determine if any cases met criteria for CATS/Probation referral. Page 15 Behavioral Health Steering Committee Minutes from June 20, 2013 Page 1 of 3

16 Dr. Hunter inquired about the low number of participants currently in OCR. The number of clients being found incompetent is the same; however, the clients are sicker and have to be treated inpatient. Staff is making every effort to refer all appropriate persons to OCR. Recently, Terrell State Hospital has been working with the courts. After stabilizing a client, the hospital then makes a referral to have the commitment order changed from inpatient to outpatient. Further discussion regarding OCR will occur at the next BHSC. SPN Reports: Lifenet Crystal Garland reported 8 participants in misdemeanor jail diversion, 8 in ATLAS, 5 participants with warrants and 5 in jail. ABC Carolyn Lennox reported they have 9 participants in ATLAS, 6 in STARR court, 6 in OCR and no clients participating in misdemeanor jail diversion. Metrocare Metrocare has 27 participants in Atlas, 29 in Post DDRTC, 21 in STAC, 30 in misdemeanor, 47 in DDRTC, 43 in FDU and 120 in ICM. The Bridge The Bridge received 3 judicial re-entry referrals and is currently accepting referrals. Please contact Dennis Strickland at State Hospital There are 25 defendants waiting on a bed, 198 defendants at the hospital and 65 cases back from the state hospital and waiting to be resolved.
