The Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) Service Facilitator is responsible for providing service
coordination and support aimed at reducing the impact of serious mental health challenges in youth
and young adults (ages 6-35). CCS is a statewide program administered by counties for program
participants who are in need of ongoing services for a mental illness, substance use disorder, or a
dual diagnosis beyond occasional outpatient care, but less than the intensive care provided in an
inpatient setting. The program participant works with a dedicated team of service providers to
develop a strengths-based treatment and recovery plan to meet the participant’s unique needs and
goals.

respond to the urgent and emergent needs of enrolled program participants.
4. Provide screening and assessment, service linkage, service facilitation and other allowable and
appropriate services on the CCS service array in a manner that is trauma-informed, culturally
relevant, and non-stigmatizing.
5. Develop collaborative and comprehensive individualized assessments and recovery plans and
other related paperwork including Chapter 51 status reports and adhere to the required
paperwork deadlines.
6. Assist the program participant with identifying and establishing natural and professional
supports in the community.
7. Maintain contact with program participants to a degree sufficient to support effective
engagement as well as monitor and assist progress.
8. Coordinate recovery team meetings at least every six months.

levels of care as appropriate.

progress utilizing a team approach.
3. Plan, attend and participate in in-service trainings, conferences, and outside training programs
as authorized and directed.
4. Provide participant-related backup services to colleagues as needed.
