Behavioral Health Case Management Program
Providing Individualized Coordination of Services & Resources
Behavioral Health Case Management is a voluntary, community-based service helping individuals identify, access, develop and coordinate available services and resources.
How it Works
A case manager meets with an individual approved to receive this service to conduct a needs assessment. Together, they develop an individual service plan.
After a plan is developed, case managers meet with participants at least once a month to help them reach their goals by connecting them with needed resources, providing care coordination and advocacy.

PATH Case Management

Individuals has a mental health diagnosis and meets one of these definitions of homelessness:
