Children's Case Management
“Case Managers at Community Care are so helpful and have a lot of resources, more than the typical person. They are reliable, are always there for you when you call or get right back to you, and help you with so much. You are not alone…. they are there for you.” —Kristin Sands
Case management services are offered to parents to help them in the process of arranging for services that will help their child. Children who receive case management services have a mental health diagnosis. Some children referred do not yet have a mental health diagnosis but demonstrate behaviors that are of concern. In those situations, we assist the parent in making a referral for a clinical assessment.
What you can expect to receive from the children’s case management program includes, but is not limited to:
- Comprehensive Assessment – Assessment of your child’s strengths and needs;
- Resources – Support in identifying services that your child may benefit from and assistance in putting those services in place;
- Advocacy – Assistance in advocating for services within the school system and with other service providers;
- Support – Support in helping to address the barriers that are causing strain on your family/child;
- Case coordination – Help in ensuring that everyone who is providing support to your child within various settings are all working together in your child’s best interest.
To receive the case management service, the child must have MaineCare and a mental health diagnosis. Assistance to the parent is offered upon referral to determine eligibility for the service and to help arrange a clinical assessment to determine if the child has a mental health diagnosis, if necessary.
