Background Information:

PEMHS continues to serve Pinellas County 24-hours per day, 7 days per week as the only public Baker Act receiving facility.  In Fiscal Year 2018 (FY18) the CSU served 3,255 duplicated clients and in the first two quarters of FY19 the CSU served 1,730 duplicated clients.  For the past 18 months (January 2018 - June 2019), the CSU recidivism rate averaged at 10.9%, in June 2019 it was 8.6%. 

In June 2018, Pinellas County coordinated the implementation of PICA to connect clients to critical services to avoid the need for crisis stabilization.  The Pinellas Integrated Care Team (PIC Team) has enrolled 181 of the 280 high need individuals referred by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Mental Health Unit. 

The PICA Steering Committee made up of Human Services, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, Central Florida Behavioral Health Network, and DOH Pinellas, holds monthly meetings to review the program.  The Steering Committee discusses PIC Team outcomes and findings to make adjustments on program design and determine next steps.
