Sequential Intercept Mapping (SIM) Process

 

Alameda County launched a Sequential Intercept Mapping (SIM) planning process in 2017, gathering over 100 diverse stakeholders from local government, community based organizations, and medical/behavioral health providers to:

1) develop a comprehensive picture of how people with mental health (MH) or substance use disorder (SUD) conditions flow through the criminal justice system within Alameda County;

2) identify gaps, resources, and opportunities for individuals in this population; and

3) develop and prioritize strategies to improve system- and service-level responses for individuals in the target population. The SIM process identified unmet needs for the reentry population including mental health services, substance use disorder recovery services, and housing resources.
