On May 23, 2019, the TRIESTE project team presented a proposal for an Innovations pilot to the state’s Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Committee (MHSOAC) in Los Angeles. The presenters included Dr. David Pilon (lead consultant and author of the proposal), DMH staff representatives Jesus Romero and Anthony Ruffin, and Dr. Jonathan Sherin, director of Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health. (Pictured above, L – R.) The OAC heard public comment from approximately 20 speakers, the vast majority of which were extremely supportive.

The next step is for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to accept the funds and the project. The date for this hearing has not been established yet, but is anticipated no later than August, 2019.
