BLENDED CASE MANAGEMENT (BCM)


Blended Case Management (BCM) is a program designed to work with children who already receive clinical care (e.g., therapy, medication, etc.) but need something else in order to be successful at home, at school and in the community. BCM has two levels of services: Supportive Case Management (SCM) is the least restrictive level of care. The case manager will come see the child a minimum of two times per month. Intensive Case Management (ICM) is for children who require more services. The Case Manager will visit a minimum of three times per month plus one additional visit with a parent, teacher or other caregiver. Case Managers may work with families on a variety of issues including: Coordinating needed services within the community Supporting children and working with their families Educating families about various services and resources available in mental health care Helping families with streamlining their many appointments We provide tailored services to meet the needs of your child. Its uniqueness allows your child to fluctuate between intensive and supportive levels of service (as needed) without severing ties with familiar case managers.

HOME AND COMMUNITY-BASED SERVICES WAIVER (HCBSW)


The Home and Community-Based Service Waiver (HCBSW) program is the highest level of outpatient psychiatric care available to children outside of hospital and/or residential placement. Children are seen up to six times per month by an individualized care coordinator (ICC) and receive a variety of family-driven services including: Individualized care coordinator services 24-hour crisis response Intensive in-home services Respite care and skill building Family support Based on the array of services available for your child, you can see that the Waiver Program is very intensive. The services are designed to help your child in every facet of their lives. ICCs help families by: Utilizing available resources in the community Supporting parents with challenging issues Aiding parents with cross-system collaboration (school, mental health treatment, and after-school community programs) The Waiver Program is not for everyone.
