Once you and your therapist have identified your needs and goals, you may also have access to our case management services. Case Management is a dynamic process that assesses, plans, implements, coordinates, monitors, and evaluates to improve outcomes, experiences, and value. Case management can be provided in office, in your home or in the community. It helps support and enhance the strides you are making with your therapist. To be most effective, case management services are best offered in a climate that allows direct communication between the case manager, the client, and as appropriate, any other individuals involved. Case management is generally provided once per week, but can be arranged for more or fewer sessions, depending on your needs.
Sometimes, your therapist will task you with accomplishing certain things throughout the week – i.e., homework – and your case manager will help you to meet those goals. These can pertain to living skills, such as making a home budget, or pertain to your mental health goals, such as overcoming a personal barrier.
Your case managers can also help you find local resources to meet your needs, from food and shelter to advocacy efforts. Some of the main resources our case managers link their clients to include housing assistance, food assistance, insurance coverage, income based medical care, transportation, job training/education, social security/disability applications, childcare assistance, etc.
