The impact of mental health challenges goes beyond just the medical symptoms. Active recovery for those with mental illness involves a wide range of integrated care, person-centered treatment and community support. Coleman offers Case Management for children, teens and adults at all stages of life. Our Case Managers are credentialed behavioral and mental health professionals experienced in helping clients and their families in the recovery journey.
How Case Management Helps
Coleman is actively working to eliminate common barriers for those dealing with mental health issues. And our Case Managers work with you to receive the best services necessary for your recovery. They act as safety nets for individuals and families dealing with mental illness – dedicated to helping clients deal with life’s daily stressors. This may include a variety of things from illness education and coping skill teaching, securing safe housing, finding or keeping a job, enrolling in educational programs and keeping up to date with doctor visits, therapy and medication. That’s what makes Case Management so important. Coleman Case Managers work with a collaborative network of therapists, school staff, community partners and other mental health professionals and primary care providers – working toward a common goal to provide holistic, individualized, integrated care. Case Managers also promote advocacy and outreach, and they help facilitate individual and family education and training.
