The higher level of services are intended to stabilize the client’s mental health symptoms, reduce the risk of recidivism, increase client awareness of and participation within community and natural supports, develop client skills in self-advocacy, extend client tenure in the community, and assist clients in gaining the ability to participate in independent mental health care.

TCOOMMI Continuity of Care (COC):

The COC program is designed to conduct pre-release screenings and referrals for post release identification of medical, psychiatric, psychological care or treatment, educational, or rehabilitative service needs referred from TDCJ CID and other correctional offices. Coastal Plains Community Center Case Managers will then work with the client in developing and coordinating a plan for the provision of treatment, care and services including but not limited to service coordination for post release service, joint treatment planning with criminal justice agencies, social services, health and human service agencies/other appropriate disciplines, eligibility benefits services and applications. COC services are available in our nine (9) county catchment area.

COC services through TCOOMMI programs are to be provided for up to ninety (90) days for each offender with a severe and persistent mental illness admitted to service with a low clinical need and low criminal justice risk score (or for eligible offenders awaiting admittance into Intensive Case Management).

Referrals into the TCOOMMI COC program are generated by TDCJ Information Technology Division, TDCJ TCOOMMI. Staff identifies those clients with a diagnosis of a mental illness and issues mental health referrals to the appropriate LMHA. Coordination of the referral occurs upon TCOOMMI staff receiving notice of a scheduled release date and an approved residence plan for a client.

*Referrals are only accepted by TDCJ Division/Correctional Officers
