The foundation of case management is an ongoing, person-centered treatment plan. Beginning with an assessment to identify areas of need, personal resources, strengths and goals, the treatment plan should be developed by you and your case manager together, updated at regular intervals or whenever a marked change occurs. Every revision must be approved by you.
In partnership with you and people you choose, a case manager:
A case manager helps you complete paperwork and get to appointments. Your case manager may meet with you at the mental health agency, in-patient facility, your home or another community setting. Case management is usually covered by Medicaid or state funding.
Children’s case management is a similar service that works with parents and caregivers to support healthy growth and development for children.
