Prevention & Early Intervention

Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) provides funding for outreach programs for families, providers, and others to recognize early signs of mental illness and to improve early access to services and programs for suicide prevention and to reduce stigma and discrimination.  This component emphasizes programs that prevent mental illnesses from becoming severe and disabling, as well as improving timely access to services for underserved populations. Key emphasis is placed on strategies that reduce disparities for underserved ethnic and cultural populations, as well as negative outcomes that may result from untreated mental illness.

Below is Santa Clara County’s initial PEI plan, which was approved by the State in September 2009.
