The Southern Marin Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) A working model of collaborative efforts of service providers working primarily in Southern Marin.The Multidisciplinary Team model was implemented in 2006. The strategyfor formalizing the Multidisciplinary Team approach for Southern Marinwas based on the ideology of “Best Practices”.It includes the development and creation of solutions to commonproblems of poverty and social exclusion. Programs, services, andmethodologies (wraparound services) are tailored to the underserved andnot-served diverse populations.
The Southern Marin Multidisciplinary Team (MDT)MDT takes wraparound services and traditional case management to the next level.We are unique in that traditional multiservice delivery is coordinated through a postassessment case manager system. Our MDT milieu system provides theassessment (regardless of intake ownership) to be brought before the team,discussed and strategies and timelines designed and implemented with each teammember identifying their role and goal and sharing progress. ImpactThe MDT brought service providers together to provide unduplicated, sharedresources and appropriate wrap around case management to children and families.In FY 2011/2012 the MDT was used by service providers to support 150individuals and families. The MDT model of early identification of risk factors,education and prevention strategies by service providers will influence the quality oflife across multiple areas of functioning, including housing, economics, health andeducation.
