INNOVATION (INN)

Innovation (INN) projects are novel, creative and/or ingenious mental health practices/approaches that contribute to learning, and that are developed within communities through a process that is inclusive and representative, especially of un-served, under-served and inappropriately served individuals. Funds for INN may be used for increasing access to underserved groups, increasing the quality of services including better outcomes, promoting interagency collaboration, and increasing access to services.  These guidelines provide direction while maintaining the spirit of flexibility intended by the MHSA for this component.

Shasta County’s INN plan currently includes the following programs:

  1. Community Intervention Pre-Crisis Team (CIPT) (completed)
  2. Community Mental Wellness Center (planning stages – read a copy of the approved plan here)
