Access: Medi-Cal for Children: Early Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT)
Information on Service Adjustments During the COVID-19 Emergency
HHS is the County’s largest department with more than 700 employees who work at many sites throughout Marin. Many HHS offices have reopened with limited staffing to the public. Staff will continue to provide services remotely when possible for safety reasons, and residents in need of HHS services should consider conducting conversations over the phone or email when possible. Please call ahead if you have an appointment or require in-person assistance.
This team provides assessments and referrals for children and adolescents who are full-scope Medi-Cal eligible and are in need of mental health services. Children and youth with Medi-Cal are assessed by the Access staff and are then referred through Beacon Strategies to Medi-Cal providers in the community if they meet Medi-Cal necessity. Those children and youth with more serious functional impairment who need specialty mental health services are seen by the Youth & Family Services team.
The network of MMHP providers offers an array of necessary services. Psychiatric medication services are provided at our clinic at Kerner Boulevard.
Mental Health and Substance Use Services (MHSUS) changed its name to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS). As such, all references in existing departmental policies and procedures to MHSUS can be understood to reference BHRS as well.
