Innovation

Increasing access to mental health care

INN Tech Suite Project

The Innovation Technology Suite Project (INN Tech Suite Project) is being administered by CalMHSA on behalf of participating member counties. This is a three-year demonstration project which is funded and directed by counties. The primary purpose of this INN Tech Suite Project is to increase access to mental health care and support and to promote early detection of mental health symptoms, or even predict the onset of mental illness. Through the utilization of multiform-factor devices, such as smart phones, tablets and laptops, as a mode of connection and treatment to reach people who are likely to go either unserved or underserved by traditional mental health care, project services will focus on prevention, early intervention, family and social support to decrease the need for psychiatric hospital and emergency care service.
