Other Community Services



Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health offers a broad range of services. Below you will find descriptions of each of the major service areas and links to the details such as available programs or access information for each service area.

Acute Mental Health Services
Emergency Mental Health Services are provided through our inpatient psychiatric health facility and our psychiatric emergency services unit. Services include inpatient treatment of acute psychiatric conditions, crisis counseling, emergency assessment, crisis line intervention, safety planning and resource education.

Psychiatric Emergency Services
Psychiatric Emergency Services (PES) has partnered with Adventist+ Rideout Hospital to provide emergency psychiatric assessment and treatment to individuals who have been placed on a hold pursuant to Welfare & Institutions Code 5150 and who are subsequently taken to the emergency department. Staff members of PES are embedded inside Adventist+ Rideout Hospital 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Services provided by this partnership include medical clearance (Adventist+ Rideout Hospital), crisis counseling and emergency assessment for inpatient hospitalization (Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health), and psychiatric consultation (Adventist+ Rideout Hospital through a contract with Telepsychiatry). PES staff are also able to utilize Adventist+ Rideout’s contracted telepsychiatry to request medication evaluations and consult on potential rescinding of individuals placed on W&I Code 5150 in the emergency department. The PES Team consists of highly trained therapists, crisis counselors, and mental health workers that use supportive and solution-oriented problem solving to bridge individuals into outpatient services and other community resources when the W&I Code 5150 is rescinded. This three-team model of PES, Adventist+ Rideout, and telepsychiatry has led to an innovative practice of embedding treatment within the hospital and providing members of the community faster and more efficient levels of treatment when experiencing an acute psychiatric crisis.

Adult Services
Adult Services provides outpatient assessment, diagnosis and treatment of serious mental health conditions and co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. The treatment team consists of therapists, psychiatrists, nursing staff, case managers, peer mentors and support staff. We strive to provide a broad range of culturally sensitive, consumer-driven supports and services. Services are provided at Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health’s main campus as well as other community sites, such as the Probation, CalWorks and Health and Human Services buildings in both Sutter and Yuba Counties.

Youth and Family Services
The Youth and Family Services Programs are designed to meet the socio-emotional and behavioral needs of children, youth, and families. The program coordinates with community stakeholders including child welfare services, probation, and school systems to provide a continuum of care that promotes positive outcomes for children of all ages. These services include assessment/diagnosis, psychiatric services, psychotherapy, case management, intensive care coordination, intensive home-based services and therapeutic behavioral services. These services are provided at multiple office locations; as well as being provided in schools and client homes.

Families access mental health services via the Open Access Clinic at the Youth Outpatient site which occurs twice weekly. This clinic provides a basic triage to determine if children are likely to meet medical necessity criteria for specialty mental health services and, or, Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT).

The Children’s Systems of Care and the Transitional Age Youth Program are co-located at 809 Plumas Street Yuba City, CA. CSOC is an intermediary level of service for local children who meet medical necessity criteria for specialty mental health services. CSOC uses a community-based model to provide services. To ensure that children’s needs are met, services are provided at the child’s home, and or their school.

The TAY Program is the highest level of local outpatient treatment available to children/youth aged 16-25 years of age. The TAY Program uses a “full-service partnership” approach to fully engage the child/youth’s support system and provides 24/7 support to clients to ensure needs are met. The primary focus of the TAY Program is to address the mental health needs of children who are transitioning to adulthood that present with chronic mental health needs.

Youth For Change provides specialized services for children that have intensive treatment needs. The Community Based Services (CBS) Program is an intermediate level of service for local children who meet medical necessity criteria for specialty mental health services that cannot be met in a traditional outpatient setting and/or who may require significant coordination of care between child-serving agencies. The Full-Service Partnership (FSP) Program provides 24/7 support, which includes separate programs for children aged 0-5 and 6-15. FSP is the highest level of local outpatient treatment available to children of these age groups. Services are provided in the home as well as being offered in the community to ensure that clients’ needs are met. The Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) Program is an adjunctive treatment for children who have recently experienced or are at risk of hospitalization and/or placement in a group home setting. Intensive Home-Based Services Program (IHBS) is an intensive, in-home service to reduce behaviors that are placing a child at risk for being placed into foster care and/or that may disrupt and existing foster care placement.

Forensic Services
Forensic Services provides therapeutic services to youth who are incarcerated at Camp Singer and Yuba-Sutter Juvenile Hall. Psychiatric care and therapeutic services are provided to adults involved in the criminal justice system through both Yuba and Sutter County Probation Departments.

Substance Use Disorders Services
The Substance Use Disorders (SUDS) Program provides outpatient, intensive outpatient, residential placements and referrals for adults, and adolescent counseling. Services are provided at Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health’s main campus as well as at other locations throughout the community, including Sutter County CalWorks and Sutter County Probation.

Prevention Services
The Prevention & Early Intervention (PEI) Program at Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health provides a multitude of free services and trainings for community members, school staff, and law enforcement personnel. Prevention & Early Intervention activities are designed to increase awareness of risk factors and early warning signs of mental health disorders and decrease stigma, as well as to create awareness of, and alternatives to substance use among youth.

Cultural Services
The Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health Plan offers a full range of specialty behavioral health services provided by a culturally diverse network of community behavioral health programs, psychologists, therapists and intervention counselors/case managers.
