Child & Adolescent Blended Case Management

Child & Adolescent Blended Case Management (BCM)

Blended Case Management (BCM) is a community-based program providing direct care to people with special, complex needs. The aim of the Child & Adolescent Services division of BCM is to assure that children and adolescents who have or are at risk for developing a serious mental illness or emotional disorder get proper treatment and the supports necessary to help them succeed in the home, school and community.

Our services are tailored to assure our clients receive the individualized attention they need as their circumstances and needs change.

A specialized Transitioning Youth Team works with adolescents ages 16 to 21 who are in need of transition into the adult system.
