National Case Management Week is Oct. 10 to 16. This week is an opportunity to recognize the dedication, compassion and quality of client care outcomes achieved by case managers across the health care continuum. The benefits of receiving case management are numerous including, but not limited to, individualized needs assessments, care coordination, client education, problem-solving skills, case monitoring, resource linkage and management, advocacy, and discharge planning.
Appleseed Community Mental Health Center has more than 15 case management professionals working every day to educate and advocate for their clients. In 2020, the organization’s caring case managers provided services to over 2,500 individuals through its adult, family, and youth mental health services as well as through its Supported Employment, Co-Occurring Disorder (mental health/substance misuse), Housing, and Rape Crisis Domestic Violence Safe Haven programs.
The significant contributions of case managers impact the agency’s ability to provide the best client care possible, positively affecting the client experience while promoting evidence-based practices and cost-effective outcomes.
