The Misdemeanor Incompetent to Stand Trial (MIST) Program serves defendants in Los Angeles that are facing misdemeanor charges and found incompetent to stand trial. This population is often chronically homeless with severe mental health disorders and, without alternative resources must remain in the County Jail, until their maximum sentence is served or are restored to competency. The Los Angeles’ Health Agency’s Office of Diversion and Reentry (ODR) has addressed the needs of this population through a diversion program that places them in residential community settings. The goal of MIST is to restore these individuals to competency whilst living and receiving treatment in the community. Program participants are under an active Court order and required to remain medication compliant while in residence. Upon successful program completion, misdemeanor charges are dropped and program participants are transitioned into permanent supportive housing.


This particular HealthRIGHT360 (HR360) MIST program consists of 30 male clients in a private,  residential setting and includes an on-site multidisciplinary team consisting of: a Director, Clinical Supervisor, Social Worker, Case Managers, Nurse, Psychiatrist, Facility Monitors, and a Housing Manager. The Licensed Clinical Supervisor contributes to the HR360 multi-disciplinary team in developing the clinical track for this population. This program operates on the primary principals of Harm Reduction and Housing First. Harm Reduction is a set of policies, programs, and practices that aim primarily to reduce the adverse health, social, and economic consequences of the use of legal and illegal psychoactive drugs. The Housing First model is an approach that offers housing as quickly as possible to individuals experiencing homelessness and links them to supportive services, and community-based resources that help them sustain their housing.



The Licensed Clinical Supervisor reports directly to the Director, and works to drive, guide, and develop the appropriate clinical tone for the program. As part of the leadership team, the Clinical Supervisor will oversee the functions of the clinical staff and continue to enhance and educate housing staff on useful clinical approaches. The qualified candidate should have clinical supervision training and experience in order to supervise registered clinical staff and MSW interns.
