Community Action Team
The Behavioral Health Community Action Team (B.H.C.A.T) is a combined partnership between a Deputy Sheriff, Deputy Probation Officer and a licensed SLO County Mental Health Professional from Behavioral Health. The team assists individuals in crisis and collaborates with community-based services to provide assistance to unhoused individuals with severe mental illness who have come to the attention of law enforcement. Their goals are to prevent emergency hospitalizations and reduce recidivism rates of mentally ill offenders.
