Adult Services

The purpose of the outpatient portion of our program is to provide the most effective therapy possible to those individuals who are diagnosed with a mental disorder in order to return the consumer to his/her highest level of functioning. 

Collaborative Justice Treatment Court (CJTC) will strive to reduce recidivism of veterans, mentally ill, and substance use disordered individuals who are involved in the criminal justice system and provide community protection with a cost effective, integrated continuum of care through the development and utilization of community resources.

Kings View has contracted with Behavioral Health to provide a clinician for the Behavioral Health Treatment Court Kings View therapist will provide treatment for participants in the CJTC, will attend weekly court hearings, provide reports to the court, and serve on the Advisory Review Board.

The purpose is to provide Mental Health services to consumers who are diagnosed with a mental health and co-existing substance abuse diagnosis.   The Dual Diagnosis Treatment Program meets the standards developed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) as an Evidence Based Program.

The Kings View non-profit organization offers crisis response programs serving Fresno County. Our three programs include the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT), Mobile Crisis Response Team (MCRT), and our upcoming School Mobile Access Response Team (SMART).
Our crisis teams are crucial support to individuals in the community experiencing mental health crises. The program’s key objectives include stabilizing individuals in the community, connecting them to community resources and treatment services, and preventing unnecessary hospitalization or incarceration.
During crisis responses, clinicians may identify the need for resources, make referrals, and assist in navigating and obtaining essential items, such as clothing, footwear, food, and stress relief items for individuals in crisis.
Our Crisis Intervention Team is divided into rural districts and metropolitan districts to provide the most support throughout Fresno County. Our metro team serves only Fresno City and Clovis, whereas our rural team serves the remaining county areas. CIT calls are received through either 911 dispatch and co-respond with law enforcement.
Our mental health clinicians offer assessments, de-escalation techniques, and facilitate access to appropriate services. Notably, the services are available countywide and cater to individuals of all ages every day between 6:00am-midnight.
The Mobile Crisis Response Team offers vital support to individuals experiencing mental health crises without law enforcement on a 24/7 basis.
MCRT involves a mental health clinician and a crisis care coordinator who are dispatched through the designated contact number 600-6000 or 988. Teams are trauma-informed and extensively trained in de-escalation techniques and offer crisis counseling, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy interventions.
Our newest edition, the SMART program, is set to expand its services to respond to school campus crises beginning in August 2024 and will operate 8:00am-5:00pm Monday-Friday. Services will be offered to ages under 21 and children will be able to receive crisis counseling and cognitive behavioral therapy interventions and learn de-escalation techniques.

As of July 16th 2022, 988 went live as the new front facing three-digit dialing code that will route callers across the United States to their local 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline center.

When people call, text, or chat 988, they are connected to trained counselors who will support and assess anyone experiencing a suicidal or mental health crises or emotional distress.

Children’s System of Care Program

Therapists and case managers provide intensified mental health services to children and adolescents who meet the State Criteria for a substantial impairment in major life areas such as self-care, school functioning, family relationships, or ability to function in the community, and who are at risk of self-harm, loss of placement, or who meet Special Education eligibility requirements.

The therapist has an exclusive focus of serving juveniles, who are on probation, and are viewed as a high risk of re-offending.  All referrals to this program go directly to the designated therapist who is primarily stationed at the probation office. The therapist conducts the initial assessment, which might be conducted while the juvenile is still in detained status. Following assessment, the therapist will either facilitate referral to the necessary service or will provide the service himself/herself.

It is Kings View’s intent to provide holistic, multi-disciplinary treatment to adolescent sex offenders and child victims of sexual abuse so as to intervene and stop the cycle of abuse, to promote recovery and healing, and to aid in the development of healthy future outcomes for all participants and their families.

The criteria for admission to the Juvenile Sex Offender Treatment Program include the following:

  • Minor must be adjudicated;
  • Minor must take responsibility for offense;
  • Minor must be appropriate for treatment as determined through assessment interviews conducted by Sexual Abuse Treatment Program clinician;
  • Minor must understand and accept Multi-Disciplinary Team communication and  consultation as part of treatment;
  • Minor and minor’s family must display a willingness to participate fully in treatment.

The School-Based program consists of two divisions: The mainstream educational system and the Emotionally Disturbed (ED) system for children who have an educational designation of Emotional Disturbance which indicates that the child’s mental illness is such that it impacts the child’s ability to learn and succeed in a mainstream educational environment. These children are then assessed for Specialty Mental Health Services.

Services by this therapist are intended to be short term, solution driven and strength based. They will be provided on school site and will be provided in collaboration with the other current prevention activities. When longer term services are required, this position will facilitate referrals to Kings View’s Children System of Care or other clinically appropriate programs.

Therapeutic Behavioral Services are an Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment supplemental service for children/youth with serious emotional problems who are experiencing a stressful transition or life crisis and need additional short-term support to prevent placement in a group home of Rate Classification Level 12 through 14 or a locked facility for the treatment of mental health needs, including acute care, or to enable a transition from any of those levels to a lower level of residential care.


The goal of the Quality Management Program is continuous improvement of services and efficient use of resources, by:

  • Establishing mechanisms that effectively improve quality.
  • Assisting providers to remain consistent with State guidelines.
  • Assuring service delivery integration and interagency collaboration.
    • Examining the use of resources within the Mental Health System of Care and providing mechanisms that ensure delivery of consumer-centered, culturally appropriate, services that are consistent with the highest possible quality of care.

This assures appropriate referral to programs that can adequately address the identified problem areas.
