MCMHTF was developed through a pioneering public-private partnership between Montgomery County, the Texas Department of State Health Services, and Correct Care Recovery Solutions. Montgomery County developed and financed the project, and Correct Care Recovery Solutions was awarded a management contract through a competitive solicitation process. MCMHTF opened in 2011.
MCMHTF embraces recovery-oriented, trauma-informed care for all patients. The recovery model promotes patient choice and tailors treatment to meet individual needs based on the assessments of a multi-disciplinary treatment team. Support of family, friends, or other individuals selected by the patient are encouraged to participate.
MCMHTF provides evidence-based, trauma-informed behavioral health services to individuals found incompetent to stand trial. Services include individualized assessment, multidisciplinary treatment planning, psychiatric services, competency restoration, integrated treatment for co-occurring psychiatric and substance disorders, court reports, court testimony, psychosocial rehabilitation, discharge planning, medical care, pharmacy, food/nutrition, facility maintenance, transportation, and safety/security.
MCMHTF has developed processes for ensuring respect for patient rights, prevention of abuse, neglect and exploitation, the virtual elimination of seclusion and restraint, and effective linkages to the community, legal system, state psychiatric facilities, and other agencies.
