Service Highlights: Programs that Make a Difference
(From the 2014-15 annual report)

Tri-County’s program highlights range from our outstanding children’s program to our award-winning employment services. Here are a few other examples to show how these successes impact the lives of those in Clay, Platte and Ray counties:

Mental Health Liaison

The Mental Health Liaison Program is forming stronger community partnerships between law enforcement agencies, the courts and crisis systems in order to improve access to services to high-risk individuals in our community. The Liaison Program helps individuals to access services before a crisis occurs. We have actively outreached law enforcement and courts in Clay, Platte and Ray County in order to be supportive to them when dealing with a person experiencing a mental health crisis.

From the onset of this year, this program made 680 contacts with law enforcement and the courts, and approximately 450 referrals have been made. In June, the Community Mental Health Liaison began participating in home visits with the Kansas City Police Department in order to outreach to people who are desperately in need of mental health services but for whatever reason are struggling to obtain the services.

HealthCare Home

HealthCare Home is an intense, focused effort to treat Tri-County clients as “whole people” by making sure that both their mental and physical health needs are met. In less than a year, the HealthCare Home programs has met or exceeded all benchmarks established by the Missouri Division of Behavioral Health.

On a human level, the program works with nearly 1,000 consumers to screen for issues such as diabetes or high cholesterol, which otherwise may go untreated and impact the consumers’ physical and mental health. For the community, these advances also mean better health outcomes combined with reductions in things such as emergency room visits, which often end up costing everyone.


Tri-County’s award winning Prevention Program works to reduce substance abuse and improve wellness throughout the area. Among its most visible efforts is work with the Northland Coalition, which Tri-County founded and continues to support. In fiscal year 2014, Coalition highlights included new ordinances promoting smoke-free environments and establishment of drop-boxes to remove unused pharmaceuticals.

The effectiveness of these efforts was recognized when the Coalition was one of only two selected as Missouri Coalition of the Year. Coalition affiliates receiving awards included Park Hill and North Kansas City school groups.
