access to mental health care

The Same Day Access Multi-State Initiative engaged community behavioral health organizations to design and implement strategies that will result in efficient access-to-treatment processes. The participating agencies receive customized technical assistance and consultation from MTM Services.

This yearlong initiative helped organizations design and implement strategies to:

  • Assess current intake and assessment processes and re-design to reduce client wait times
  • Develop cost effective intake and assessment forms that are compliant with federal, state and regulatory requirements and that are financially viable
  • Implement strategies such as centralized scheduling and concurrent documentation in order to increase treatment capacity
  • Better engage clients and thus reduce no-show and cancel rates
