Placer County’s Adult and Children’s Systems of Care uses a
highly collaborative and integrated approach to deliver a
continuum of services to children, families and adults in the
county. For 26 years, the county has sustained a structural and
functional integration of comprehensive services that span
multiple disciplines and agencies, using a “no wrong door”
approach that allows community members to enter the system
through any agency door.
In 2006, Placer County Systems of Care joined forces with
consumers of mental health services, community members, school
and law enforcement partners, and nonprofit agencies to launch
the Campaign for Community Wellness (CCW) to transform mental
health services by strengthening the voice of its marginalized
populations and sharing the “locus of control” with consumers and
community members for decision making around mental health policy
and resource allocation.
