Personal Care Team

Our team-based model of services includes the following roles:

Care Coordinators support clients’ wellness journey by making sure they have the right specialists on their team and connecting them to resources in the agency and in the community-at-large.

Intensive Case Managers help meet clients’ basic needs, such as learning skills to help in crises, securing benefits, working toward housing stability, employment, and beyond.

Therapists are skilled in the best clinical, evidence-based practices to reduce symptoms and help clients move toward their wellness goals.

Peer Support Specialists are people who have personal experience dealing with similar situations that clients may be experiencing and can be their support while they receive help. Our Peers are familiar with mental health services and can relate to what clients may be experiencing. Peers “get it.”

Psychiatric Providers provide a full diagnostic assessment and can offer medications that may compliment the other services clients receive.
