Case Management assists eligible persons with a mental illness to access needed medical, social, psychosocial, educational, financial and other services in order to achieve a successful outcome which typically supports the consumer’s maximum independent functioning in the community. The objective of case management in a mental health system is continuity of care and service. Services may include linking, monitoring and case-specific advocacy.
- Linking: The process of referring or transferring a consumer to all required internal and external services that include the identification and acquisition of appropriate service resources.
- Monitoring: Observation to assure the continuity of service in accordance with the consumer’s treatment plan.
- Case-Specific Advocacy: Interceding on behalf of a consumer to assure to services required in the individual service plan. Case management activities are expediting and coordinative in nature rather than the primary treatment services ordinarily provided by a therapist.
The services are available to residents of Jefferson and Lewis Counties who have a serious mental illness. Consumers do not need to be receiving Medicaid in order to qualify, and services specifically tailored to the needs of persons with a co-occurring substance abuse disorder, or who are transitioning from a correctional, hospital or rehabilitation setting are available.
