TERM is an acronym for Treatment and Evaluation Resources Management, a mental health program developed under the direction of the County of San Diego Board of Supervisors and operated by Optum through a contract with County of San Diego HHSA Behavioral Health Services. The mission of the TERM program is to improve the quality and effectiveness of mental health services provided to clients served by the Dependency and Delinquency systems. Optum is responsible for contracting providers to the TERM network who have competence in evaluating and treating clients referred for child maltreatment or delinquency concerns. Optum also provides quality oversight of treatment plans and evaluation reports prepared for these clients.
