NOTE: After COVID19, RCCMHC and SRFC have joined or expanded virtual task group meetings that have goals of youth mental health and family wellbeing. More information can be found on the SRFC website: Team Tools.
School Linked Mental Health (SLMH) Task Group
The SLMH task group was developed to advise the RCCMHC Governing Board on needs, gaps, and SLMH contracts. Since COVID19, our task group has merged with the SRFC task group and DHS grantees to hold countywide virtual SLMH meetings. Other participants include MACMH and MDE.
The county-wide group meets 1:30 to 2:30 pm on the last Thursday of most months.
Crisis Response Task Group
The EMS & CMH task group was created to improve our multi-system response to children's mental health crises at home, at school, or in the community. In particular, the RCCMHC Board was concerned with youth experiences between home/school and ER. RCCMHC partnered with SRFC to address needs and gaps and to develop new tools, communication strategies and policies. This group is currently focused on the large increase in youth mental health acuity, youth boarding in ERs and lack of beds for inpatient/ residential.

Resource Navigation Task Group
The Resource Navigation Task Group was developed by SRFC and is a combination of several of their groups (Community Social Workers/Community Resource Navigators, Homework Starts with Home Housing Navigator & Case Aide.)
Today, this online group includes RCCMHC and MHealth Fairview's Eastside Community Health and Wellness Collaborative (Cultural Brokers.) System providers meet to share time-sensitive resources. The group meets from 10 to 11:00 on the last Wednesday of every month.

Rapid Response Task Groups
Many different "Rapid Response" Task Groups were called during the months following the emergence of COVID19. For example, some groups learned how to rapidly deploy telehealth. Other groups gathered to address the shelter in place order, physical distancing restrictions or the community's response to George Floyd's death. Daily and weekly meetings were pulled together quickly. SRFC and RCCMHC partnered together whenever possible.
