About SCCAT
SCCAT began in 2000 as a NJ Division of Mental Health Services (DMHS) contracted service to help individuals with developmental disabilities and co-occurring mental health or behavioral problems obtain the needed level of behavioral health support within the least restrictive setting. SCCAT confers with providers to offer technical assistance to partial care programs, community mental health centers, inpatient psychiatric units, state and county psychiatric facilities and with DD providers to identify levels of mental health support needed. SCCAT services were expanded on June 18, 2007 to include funding through the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). SCCAT provides crisis response to consumers in a variety of settings to help manage behavioral crises in place, to avert unnecessary hospitalizations and assist consumers and their professional and family supports obtain needed expertise to return consumers to baseline functioning. SCCAT is the only dually funded program that provides statewide clinical outreach.
