Adult Mental Health

The Washington County Adult Mental Health Unit is comprised of case managers (social workers) and nurses whose primary function is to provide mental health case management services. Mental health case managers can provide assistance to individuals with a Serious and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI) by providing resources and referrals which may include housing, transportation, vocational, applying for benefits, social rehabilitation, outpatient individual or group therapy, nursing services, chemical health services, or psychiatric services.

Case managers also provide ongoing mental health support through telephone contacts and face to face visits in the community. Most mental health case management services are provided on a voluntary basis.
