Case management services are provided to those children/adolescents with Serious Emotional Disturbances (SED) (and their families) who need multiple services that require referral and coordination among a variety of providers.
Case management services may include, but are not limited to the following:
Case management services assist children who are Seriously Emotionally Disturbed and their families in practical areas of daily living. For example, case managers may act as a liaison to other agency services, including medication management and therapy. A case manager can also help you to research area services providers, coordinate with other service agencies, and monitor progress toward mental health goals.
Parents or guardians can request case management services from their outpatient therapist, who will make the referral. Those who are not currently seeing a therapist can request assistance from Emergency Services, who will schedule an intake/evaluation appointment with a mental health therapist.
