Mental health case management is a vital tool for providing support and guidance during treatment. It helps to ensure that patients receive the care they need in a timely manner while also helping them navigate the complexities of the mental healthcare system. During your time at Peer Mental Wellness, you’ll work with a case manager who can provide access to community resources, help with aspects of recovery like housing and employment, and serve as a mental health advocate.
Case managers can provide support and guidance throughout your mental health treatment and act as an intermediary between you, mental health professionals, and other mental health service providers. They can help you develop a mental health treatment plan that meets your individual needs, provide support in accessing mental health resources, and offer advice about mental health care.

What Is Case Management?
Case management is an evidence-based method of providing comprehensive care coordination services to individuals with mental illness. A certified case manager works with the patient, their family members, and other members of their healthcare team to create an individualized care plan tailored to the patient’s unique needs. This includes:
- Linking patients with appropriate services and resources, such as housing assistance programs or employment opportunities
- Advocating for their rights
- Connecting them with psychiatric professionals
- Ensuring that their medications are managed properly
- Assisting with finding employment or housing as needed
Case managers are essential parts of the treatment team, providing coordinated mental health services and support to ensure that patients are able to access the care they need and continue their growth even after treatment.
How Does Case Management Support Treatment?
Case management helps to bridge the gap between the patient and their healthcare team by providing support in navigating the complexities of the mental health system. By providing personalized assistance, case managers are able to ensure that patients have access to all available resources and treatments in order to achieve optimal outcomes. Additionally, they can serve as advocates on behalf of the patient when necessary, helping them get access to necessary services or advocating for higher-quality care.
What Can Patients Expect from Case Management?
Patients can expect their case manager to be attentive to their needs and provide personalized assistance throughout their journey towards recovery. For example, case managers will provide emotional support by being available for questions or concerns about treatment plans or other aspects of managing a mental illness. They will also help connect patients with additional resources as needed, such as peer-support groups or home visits from a clinician if indicated by symptoms or progress in treatment. Finally, they may even accompany patients to doctor’s appointments if desired in order to ensure that they understand all information presented during those visits.
