Plan of Care
The County of Siskiyou Behavioral Health Plan involves members in
setting their treatment goals and in planning their care. Members may
request a second opinion regarding their care. They may also request a
change of clinician or case manager, subject to the Plan’s ability to
meet the request.
County of Siskiyou Behavioral Health Services is committed to an ideal

to foster partnership and inclusion that promotes mutual understanding

follow legal procedures to honor the confidentiality of member services
and health records.
