Behavioral Health Home Services provide a team-based approach to the integration of physical and behavioral services. It supports adults with mental health challenges who also want support to improve their physical health and coordinate all their service providers.
It also adds an Intentional Peer Support component to help people develop natural and peer supports in the community. Service recipients may be living alone or in a group home setting or homeless. A Behavioral Health Home is not an actual building, instead of a home that helps coordinate services.
The Behavioral Health Home team consists of a Health Home Coordinator who acts in a case management capacity, an Intentional Peer Support Specialist, and a Nurse Care Manager. The team consults with primary care and psychiatric providers.
Through assessment & care plan development, support can include:
- Identifying needs related to physical and behavioral care, housing, education, vocation, finance, socialization, and development of natural and peer supports.
- Coordination of care among physical and behavioral services.
- Crisis planning and management.
- Inclusion of family, cultural, and religious supports.
- Identifying, obtaining, and maintaining resources and benefits in the community as they relate to identified needs.
- One-on-one and group peer support
