Yolo Community Care Continuum (YCCC) is proud to be in partnership with Suicide Prevention of Yolo County (SPYC) for the Woodland Healthcare Dignity Health Community Grant.

The YCCC and SPYC partnership will address the current gap in access to mental health services during non-business hours.  The collaboration between SPYC and YCCC will provide ways to close this gap in care by utilizing the SPYC 24-hour availability of the Language Line.  Crisis mental health services will be available to vulnerable individuals who need immediate assistance for a mental health crisis in order to avoid higher levels of care.

The goals include:

  • Providing immediate crisis phone response for callers experiencing a mental health crisis
  • Providing access to crisis residential services if individuals need more support
  • Decrease utilization of emergency room services for mental health situations that do not require hospitalization
