Mental Health Services: Case Management

WHAT IS CARE MANAGEMENT AND CARE COORDINATION? Care management and care coordination is a direct resource for adults 18 years of age and up. An individual care manager or care coordinator provides services in the home and the community. Case management has varying levels of intensity depending on the program. The goals of care management and care coordination are to strengthen and empower adults so that they can live safe and productive lives. Care management and care coordination services include ongoing assessment of the adult’s strengths and challenges; development of an adult/person-centered; goal oriented service plan; linking the adult to appropriate services; monitoring effectiveness of services as they relate to the service plan; and advocacy.

WHAT IS THE ELGIBILITY CRITERIA? The consumer must possess a DSM-5 diagnosis that meets criteria for Serious Mental Illness (SMI), or a DSM-5 diagnosis with extended impairment of functioning due to mental illness.

WHAT IS ACT? ACT is an evidenced-based practice that offers treatment, rehabilitation and support services, using a person-centered, recovery-based approach, to individuals that have been diagnosed with a severe and persistent mental illness. ACT services are provided to individuals by a mobile, multi-disciplinary team in community settings.
