Pride Mental Health - Case Management
Target Case Management (TCM), also commonly/simply known as Case Management, assists individuals through facilitating access to additional needed community services through comprehensive assessment, service planning, referral and monitoring. Case management services are recovery-based and are intended to help participants gain (or regain) access to behavioral, medical, or social services when the individual is unable to do so independently.
Target Case Management services assist adults, adolescents and children who have limited ability to obtain or arrange services for themselves. The goal of the service is to assist individuals with mental illnesses in obtaining the basic services required to live as independently as possible in their communities. The services are intended to work with and help individuals develop the skills necessary to utilize resources within the community independently.
Target Case Managers coordinate services and advocate for the individual served when they are not able to advocate for themselves. The goal of Target Case Management is to ensure an individual is receiving the support they need while working to increase the individual’s ability for self support and self advocacy. Case Managers can assist with the following:
- Maintaining eligibility
