Children’s & Adolescent’s Case Management Program
The Children's and Adolescent's Case Management Program at Maine Behavioral Health Organization (MBHO) assists families in identifying
and meeting a wide range of needs for their child with a mental health diagnosis.
Maine Behavioral Health Organization’s children and adolescent services include assessment, referral, linkage, monitoring and advocacy.
Case management enables parents to become informed about resources and to be able to effectively advocate for their child. Case managers
work with families to develop individualized service plans to identify and meet needs in areas including therapy, psychiatry, behavioral
services, educational advocacy and consultation, social/recreation, coordination of treatment teams and plans, accessing benefits, and support and guidance.
Target population is children age 5 through 18 who have a mental health diagnosis and reside in Kennebec, Somerset or Franklin County.
Our program is staffed by experienced case managers that meet LSW conditional eligibility requirements and are supervised by a masters’ level staff.
Case managers meet with families in home, school, and community settings on a regular basis to develop service plans and meet goals. MBHO exits
the case management process when parents feel comfortable about going forward on their own.
