Case Management Services - Adult and Children

About Adult Case Management Services:

The South Central Alabama Mental Health Center (SCAMHC) has Case Management services in each of our four counties.  Case Management is a broad range program designed to identify the needs of seriously mentally ill persons living in the community and to assist those persons in meeting their needs. The program recognizes that mentally ill persons, like most people, have needs for food, shelter, health care, clothing, money, social support, transportation, education, and recreation. Furthermore, it recognizes that because of their illness, and because of the fragmentation of existing social services, individuals with mental illness have considerable difficulty in fulfilling many of these needs. Case Management is a primarily home-based program; therefore, Case Managers will be conducting home visits for individuals approved for services.

Services Offered:

  • Formal needs assessment
  • Development of a Case Plan to meet identified needs
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Transportation assistance
  • Linkage to agency resources (within and outside of our agency)
