Transitions, Integration and Partnerships (TIP) Unit
The Transitions Integration and Partnerships (TIP) Unit manages DBHIDS resources focused on ending homelessness and increasing opportunities for Community Inclusion for persons with significant behavioral health challenges. The unit has planning and operational responsibility for DBHIDS Homeless Services and grant funded living situations.
Resources focused on ending homelessness include leadership and support for street outreach, liaison activities with the City’s Office of Homeless Services and other city and community agencies focused on the goals of the Mayor’s Ten Year Plan to end Homelessness.
The other major unit function is to match priority individuals to an appropriate living situation for persons with significant behavioral health challenges. While housing and mental health residential services are not an entitlement service, the unit assists such priority persons to be effectively and strategically matched to the living situation that will optimize recovery and ensure maximized community inclusion opportunities. The unit assures that participants live in the most clinically appropriate settings possible and makes the most efficient use of the residential resources available to the County Office of Mental Health.
