Civil Commitment Mapping

OCBHJI has developed a civil commitment mapping process in Oregon inspired by Policy Research Associates’ (PRA) Sequential Intercept Model (SIM). The workshop facilitates conversations focused on promoting best possible outcomes while identifying opportunities for improvement and creating action plans to overcome identified barriers.


  • Deconstruct the civil commitment system into decision points to better understand how someone flows through the system.

  • Increase understanding of roles and responsibilities throughout the civil process. 

  • Identify opportunities for improvement and pinch points at each decision point. 

  • Develop a strategic plan (action plan).

Planning for Action

Action Planning provides an opportunity to engage in a solution-focused discussion with multiple stakeholders to create community-specific system improvement(s). The action planning portion develops specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time sensitive (SMART) goals the community can put into place as a (ready-to-use) blueprint for initiating and achieving change. 


  • Community specific goals

  • Voted on by participants of the workshop

  • Cross-system collaboration

  • Collectively identified goals using collaborative investigation  

  • Participants will work together in order to solve problems and create collective goals 

  • Continuous improvement

  • Better outcomes
