What is mental health case management?
Mental health case management is a free service that helps you navigate the complex system of mental health care and connect to available resources and services that best meet your needs when you experience barriers to access or have difficulty managing your condition.
A mental health case manager can help you:
- understand your individual health care plan including how to maximize your benefits
- coordinate care with providers, clinics, and programs to facilitate treatment for your mental health or substance use condition
- connect to community-based services and resources for recovery, including those to meet needs for shelter, food, transportation, and legal concerns
- enhance wellness through education, goal setting, and self-care initiatives
- develop a support network for recovery through peer support
- define a safety plan for crisis management
Note: this is a non-clinical service. Our mental health case managers will provide supportive services and have extensive background in mental health, but they are not licensed therapists.
A behavioral case manager does not provide:
- Mental health therapy
- Crisis services
- Help for the sole purpose of finding a therapist, psychiatrist, or other mental health provider
