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 manual has been developed as a resource for providers of BHRS. It outlines documentation standards and practices required within the Children, Youth and Family System of Care, Adult/Older Adult System of Care, contract providers, and Substance Use Services. It serves to ensure that providers within BHRS meet regulatory and compliance standards of competency, accuracy, and integrity in the provision and documentation of their services.
