Rapid Integrated Support & Engagement (RISE) is a program designed to support building bridges to treatment for individuals unable or unwilling to access help.
The RISE Program is offered by Ventura County Behavioral Health specifically to encourage and enable people in these situations to get assessment and treatment. The field-based outreach team makes contact, then provides ongoing support in navigating any challenges to accessing care.
If a person is experiencing a moderate or high-risk crisis – if their words or behaviors suggest they may harm themselves or others, or if they appear to be gravely disabled - Contact the Crisis Team at 1-866-998-2243, for immediate crisis support.
Law Enforcement Partnership Teams
RISE and local Law Enforcement agencies have partnered with the goal to support individuals in the community who have high calls for service and may be creating disturbances in the community. A RISE Community Service Coordinator and Law Enforcement Officer will work with individuals to assist in linkage to services and resources to reduce the number of calls to service, hospitalizations and/or incarcerations.
