Description of Service
VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System's Community Support Program/Mental Health Intensive Case Management Program (MHICM)works with veterans diagnosed with serious mental illness, helping them transition to community living and fostering independence and recovery.
MHICM advocates a philosophy of recovery and rehabilitation. Veterans enrolled in this program have an assigned intensive case manager who has frequent contact with them through regular visits. The case manager will facilitate their integration into the community using natural support systems, such as family, landlords and employers, whenever possible.
Our integrated, multidisciplinary team delivers services that provides intensive, flexible community support, improves health status by reducing psychiatric symptoms, and decreasing inpatient hospital use, focuses on recovery, and improves community adjustment, functioning and quality of life.
