The goal of the fund is to enhance the quality of life of city residents by investing and participating in a coordinated system of social, behavioral, and physical health services aligned with community priorities.
The focus of the fund is to improve the health and wellness of adults with behavioral health concerns so that they can live a self-directed life and strive to reach their fullest potential. Desired outcomes are that St. Louis City adults will experience healthy functioning and have skills, resources, and opportunities that support health wellness.
Standard outcome indicators:

- Develop/strengthen independent living skills
- Reduce/effectively manage symptoms;
- Secure/maintain safe, stable housing;
- Maintain/improve management of co-morbid conditions;
- Secure/maintain gainful employment and/or pursue other educational attainment;
- Maintain/improve management of co-occurring conditions;
- Resolve legal issues and/or requirements;
- Avoid/reduce substance abuse;
- Develop/maintain natural supports (e.g., relationships with family, peers, and others).
Eligible frameworks are:
- Consistent with MHB's mission;
- Supported by the 2018 Adult Behavioral Health Community Needs Assessment findings and recommendations;
- Strategically aligned with community priorities and regional calls to action that support behavioral health wellness and recovery for St. Louis City adults.
Key Priorities A: Expand service capacity to meet the needs of more people and develop innovative approaches to address behavioral health needs.
- Expand specialty services (outreach, intensive outpatient programs/treatment, 24/7 crisis access/response services, inpatient supports, longer-term care/case management/followup, especially post-crisis, medication assisted treatment).
- Add capacity by expanding existing successful services, evidence-based approaches, or innovative programs.
- Develop transition opportunities for those who have maintained stability to be served through other alternatives to traditional or lower levels of care.
- Support creative approaches to address the shortage of psychiatric care (support primary care providers to manage care of those with mild to moderate BH needs, Advance Practice Nursing, consultation/telehealth).
Key Priority B: Improve access to existing behavioral health services by removing barriers and offering more navigational assistance.
- Strengthen access points for adults to know about BH services and navigate to care.
- Strengthen linkage and referral networks and support navigation services for "no wrong door."
- Increase navigation assistance to improve access and engagement to existing BH services.
- Enhance care coordination within and across agencies to improve access and engagement, including improving infrastructure for standardized shared information/communication between agencies.
- Improve transitions of care and follow-up activities for adults who transfer between internal programs, external providers or across care settings.
- Develop targeted partnerships and opportunities to promote access to affordable psychiatric medications.
- Support integration, including co-location of BH in other settings particularly primary care and trusted community institutions (e.g. faith community).
Key Priority C: Interrupt or prevent behavioral health crises at earlier stages and respond to crises in more innovative and effective ways.
- Reorganize service arrays to build the capacity of service providers to prevent, interrupt and intervene in crises.
- Explore options that are alternatives to Emergency Rooms.
- Provide BH screenings, earlier intervention, and referral linkages to social services and primary care across sectors.
- Increase diagnosis and evaluation availability and accessibility to improve early identification and treatment of BH needs.
- Collaborate with violence prevention and crime victim advocates, law enforcement and criminal justice systems to effectively respond to adult BH needs (e.g. CIT officer expansion and collaborative discharge planning for services post-incarceration).
- Utilize motivational interviewing and peer models to foster engagement in services at critical intervention points, particularly for hard-to-engage populations and those without guardianship or support.
- Explore barriers to care access prior to crisis and address them through partnerships with acute and community-based providers.
Projects should be tailored to meet the specific needs of adult residents of St. Louis City ages 18 and older.
All proposed projects must focus on provision of services specifically for St. Louis City residents in line with MHB’s governing statute.
