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.

Known for its low-barrier access and welcoming environment, the Enterprise Resource Center (ERC) plays a key role in Marin’s efforts to outreach to and engage with adults with serious mental illness in the county who are disenfranchised and reluctant to seek help and services. Managed and staffed entirely by mental health consumers, the center promotes a strengths-based, harm-reduction approach and offers clients a one-stop central location to access and receive services such as socialization activities, peer counseling, mentoring, psycho-educational activities, and support groups.  Increasingly, other agencies and individuals are coming to the ERC to provide classes and groups at the center. 

Services are targeted for transition-age youth (18+), adults and older adults who have serious mental illness and their families, many of whom are currently disenfranchised or reluctant to become involved in the mental health system. These individuals may or may not have a co-occurring substance abuse disorder and/or other serious health condition.

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.
