Our multi-disciplinary team approach includes case managers, psychiatrists, social workers, a certified peer specialist, resource specialist, and a recovery coach. Our team recognizes the unique and complex nature of serious mental illness and the importance of treatment for these individuals. The BOAT Program seeks to provide a fully integrated continuum of wraparound services.
The Case Manager is a masters-level clinician who will determine client needs by completing intake assessments and psychosocial evaluations. Case managers coordinate supportive services across partnering agencies and facilitate solutions to problems that may arise, through frequent communication with the individual, family members or others close to the individual, and treatment providers.
