Intensive Case Management
Intensive Case Management (ICM) provides mental health treatment services and supports that help individuals with severe mental illness achieve their recovery goals.
ICM services assist individuals in minimizing the negative effects of symptoms of mental health problems and addictive diseases that interfere with daily living, independent functioning and personal development.
Services help individuals develop strategies and support to avoid out-of- home placement, reduce the need for more intensive services and coordinate access to other needed community services and resources.
ICM Services can be provided in a clinic, at an individual’s home or in a community setting (i.e. homeless shelters, street environments); depending on the needs and preferences of the individual.
