75% clients in home annually.

Pretrial Services Navigator program – assists individuals with behavioral health disorders currently involved with the Arapahoe County Courts navigate the justice and public benefits systems.
80% successful termination rate.
In Q1 of 2021, the successful termination rate was 75%. The successful termination rate decreased to 62% in Q2 2021. While the County strives to attain at least an 80% successful termination rate, performance is difficult to predict given the many challenges faced by individuals with behavioral health disorders.
Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office - provides mental health services to current inmates within the Arapahoe County detention system.
Although the Arapahoe County Detention Facility certainly saw an impact on our overall Average Daily Population (ADP) due to the pandemic, our Mental Health Services remained active. For instance:
- In 2019 our monthly ADP was approximately 1,100 with an average of 2,264 Mental Health contacts per month
- In 2020 our monthly ADP was approximately 1,000 for the first three months of the year, but then dropped to approximately 650 during the remaining nine months with an average of 1,953 Mental Health contacts per month
- In 2021 our monthly ADP is approximately 700 YTD with an average of 2,084 Mental Health contacts per month (through June 2021)
With the lower ADP in mind, the Mental Health Services were able to maintain an average of nearly 2,000 patient contacts per month. This can likely be associated to increased availability by the Licensed Mental Health Professionals (due to the decreased ADP), but also due to increased acuity displayed by the inmate-patient population. The delivery of quality Mental Health services is a priority to the Arapahoe County Detention Facility, and we will continue to evaluate best practices that will enhance the delivery of services to this high-risk patient population.
