|RACM Community of Practice- Mental Health Services and Resources
December 12, 2018
Light refreshments will be served. Check-in between 8:00 - 8:30 with the program to begin at 8:30.
The Rockford Area Case Management Initiative (RACM) provides a community-wide approach to deliver individualized, strength-based, and person-centered support services that help participants achieve specific, self-defined outcomes leading to self-sufficiency. Over 150 Rockford area Case Managers have already completed this training, with nearly 100 more attendees already scheduled for large-group or agency specific trainings in 2019, and tentative train-the-trainer sessions for leaders in Case Management around the state.
Quarterly Community of Practice events are held to strengthen skills and increase knowledge on specialized topics, share information and best practices for the field of case management in general, and provide an opportunity for networking among local case managers to help you successfully implement the foundation skills of the community wide approach to Case Management. Bring flyers and information about your upcoming programs and events - A table will be provided for attendees to leave or gather information.
The December 2018 COP session will focus on mental health services available in our community. Participants will leave with a basic understanding of the scope of services available in the community and an understanding of populations served by, and services available at, Rosecrance, Stepping Stones, NAMI, Family Counseling Services, and RMH Behavioral Health.
After the session, participants should be able to answer:
1. What services are available in Rockford?
2. How many people use those services?
3. What other resources are available for people with mental health needs, and those who support them?
4. What are the qualifications for services with FCS, Rosecrance, NAMI, and RMH?
Following the training there will be an informative Q&A session.
The information provided at these COP sessions will be useful and relevant to all case managers, even if your primary client base does not utilize the sub-sector services which are the focus of the day.
