Integrated Case Management Services (ICMS) Union
Sponsored by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Newark, Integrated Management Services (ICMS) functions on the belief that adults with serious and persistent mental illness can better manage their illness, increase their functioning, and improve heir sense of mastery and well being with appropriate information and support.
Target Population of ICMS
ICMS provides intensive, "in-vivo" case management services to adults ages 18 and over who have serious and persistent mentall illnesses. ICMS is funded by the New Jersey Division of Mental Health Services to provide services to residents of Union County.
- First priority clients are adults discharged from state and county hospitals.
- Second priority is given to adults who have repeated admissions to Short Term Care Facilities.
- Third priority will be given to people with repeated admissions to local inpatient units within a twelve-month period, or two or more uses of emergency/screening services within a 30 day period.
- ICMS will also give priority to adults whom have a willingness to utilize and/or ability to benefit from community services and supports is limited and whose welfare in the community is threatened because of it.
ICMS services are designed to engage and support consumers while striving to help them integrate into the community setting of their choice and facilitate access to and utilization of needed resources and supports.
