Children’s Mental Health Case Management is a service provided to children, ages 0-18 years of age, that have significant emotional and/or behavioral needs. The intention of Children’s Mental Health Case Management is to assist families in navigating the mental health system and coordinating services in order to meet the unique needs of the child.
Our Children’s Mental Health Unit will help determine if your child qualifies for case management by giving you resources to help find a qualified mental health provider to complete a diagnostic assessment or by working with your child’s current mental health provider to gather the necessary paperwork and qualifications. If your child is determined eligible for case management, an agency social worker will then meet with you to discuss what service options are available for your child and family.
Children’s Mental Health Case Management is a voluntary service and may be accepted or refused by parents. If these services are refused, other mental health services and community resources continue to be available to the family, if desired.
