Mental Health Case Management Services are available for adults with problems relating to mental health.
These services provide the following:
Evaluation: Individuals will initially be evaluated to see if they are eligible and
appropriate for services that we offer. The individual may receive a mental health evaluation from a certified psychiatrist.
Linkage: Once an individual has been enrolled in mental health case management services,
the individual will be linked to services available in the community which will meet their identified needs.
Coordination: We work together with family, physicians, Criminal Justice System,
therapists, Department of Social Services, school staff and administration, and other service providers and
agencies to work toward the common purpose of helping individuals reach their potential.
Advocacy: We provide a voice for individuals in situations when their own voice may
not be heard, in order to empower them to strive toward personal goals.
Supportive Counseling: We provide support and encouragement, and educate individuals
on appropriate behavior and conduct and teach valuable coping and communication skills. We encourage individuals
to be an active participant in their treatment and to maintain treatment compliance.
Follow-up: We provide regular follow-up by meeting with the individual and coordinating
with other agencies that are involved in the individual's life at least monthly and throughout their treatment.
