Children’s mental health case management is a voluntary service provided to children 0 to 21 years of age who have a severe emotional disturbance and who meet certain criteria as determined by a mental health professional. The children’s mental health intake worker can assist you and your child to:
Determine if any mental health problems exist
Help you find a qualified mental health professional to assess your child
Work with your mental health professional to gather the necessary paperwork for qualification
Case management services are designed to help your child obtain needed mental health services, social services, educational services, health services, vocational services, recreational services, and other related services in order to improve your child’s behavior and functioning within the family, school, and community.
