Discharge Assistance Program

The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (Department) initiated the Discharge Assistance Program (DAP) in 1998. The DAP supports the Department’s commitment to person-centered and recovery based care. The DAP is supported with a pool of state mental health funds allocated to each DBHDS region (Region) to implement community capacity and/or individualized services and supports that enable adults receiving services in state hospitals to live in the community. Regional allocations of DAP state mental health funds are used for individuals at the state hospital.

LIPOS funding is a restricted program designed to divert individuals from admission to state hospitals when clinically appropriate. And expand the availability of local inpatient psychiatric hospital Services. Funding should be given to individuals who are under a Temporary Detention Order (TDO) in efforts to divert from state psychiatric facilities.
