Bruce Bronzan, president of Trilogy Integrated Resources, will launch a new Web site for mental health consumers and providers,, in Tulare County at this year’s eighth annual Mental Health Housing Conference on Thursday, May 18, 2006, hosted by Tulare County Health & Human Services Agency Department of Mental Health.

The Tulare County Network of Care for Mental Health Web site is an online information place that provides information, communications and advocacy with a single point of entry for those seeking mental health services.

“This new Web site will enable people to find the right service at the right time,” said Bronzan.

Sponsored by an innovation grant from the State of California in partnership with Tulare County, Network of Care for Mental Health ( is a pilot program for California and the nation. Regardless of where individuals, families and agencies begin their search for assistance with behavioral health issues, Network of Care for Mental Health ensures they will find what they need. The new Web site will enable people to find the right service; educate themselves about their issues; understand current policy initiatives and advocate directly to elected officials, and better manage their affairs, interactions and important records.

The Network of Care for Mental Health provides a comprehensive Service Directory of the approximately 300 service providers in Tulare County, putting people in touch with the right services at the right time. Network of Care also provides easy-to-search libraries and vital information about specific disorders, pending legislation and advocacy, as well as daily news articles from around the world concerning mental health, mental retardation and substance abuse.

To increase accessibility and accommodate Network of Care’s users, the site’s innovative technology provides near-universal access, regardless of literacy or income level, to Web-based services through a text-only version of the site and other adaptive technologies. The site is fully ADA-compliant and Bobby-approved. Network of Care also is available in multiple languages.

Service providers can share challenges and ideas, as well as create powerful new mechanisms to better serve people with mental illness, mental retardation and substance abuse, by embracing Network of Care’s communication tools such as message boards and community calendars. Service providers can even build their own free Web sites in the For Providers section.
