Case Management

About Case Management

The Case Management Program provides targeted case management services to adults with psychiatric disorders and co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders.

Case Management is a community-based intervention program that promotes independence and stability within the consumer’s living, learning, working and social environments. The program also helps in reducing the number, intensity and frequency of psychiatric hospital days.

Case Management services can include:

Linking our consumers and their families with available services needed to maintain good mental and physical health and stability.

Helping our consumers find safe, affordable housing by linking them with HUD and other subsidized programs as well as private landlords.

Working with educational and vocational supports to develop plans focused on an individual’s potential and success.

Assessing levels of independence and a family’s ability to provide basic needs such as proper nutrition and clothing; then organizing and implementing a process to fill in any existing gaps.

Assessing one’s in-come and health insurance, including entitlements, and then advocating in the best interest of the consumer and family for support and community resources.

Case Managers coordinate and monitor services and supports by:

  • Using a strength-based,
    needs driven approach
  • Encouraging consumer choice throughout service involvement
  • Helping consumers identify and build relationships with natural supports
  • Providing advocacy, community-based referrals and support
  • Partnering with consumers to create and sustain community involvement
  • Promoting wellness, recovery and self-determination
  • Recognizing and addressing
    co-occurring (mental health and substance abuse) issues
  • Offering several psycho-education groups for both consumers
    and their families
