Strategic Plan 2024-2029

The Challenge

This strategic plan comes at a pivotal time for the agency and the community. To emerge from a difficult era marked by the pandemic, an explosion in opioid overdose and suicides, and a growing need for crisis services for all ages, the County has turned its sights forward.

The Plan

In January 2024, the SLO County Behavioral Health Department committed to a five-year Strategic Plan. This plan provides high-level guidance on what and where the Department will focus attention and resources, considering current assets and needs, as well as current policy and economic environment. See a Summary of the Behavioral Health 2024-2029 Strategic Plan. The complete Strategic Plan will be posted soon!

The Contributors

The Behavioral Health 2024-2029 Strategic Plan was developed by Health Management Associates with input from the SLO Behavioral Health Steering Committee as well as stakeholder interviews and focus groups. View the contributing agencies and personnel.
