    Mental Health Intensive Case Management  (MHICM) is an Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model of care.  MHICM provides case management services and has primary clinical responsibility for veterans with serious mental illness often with co-occurring substance abuse and/or other complex psycho-social issues.  These veterans have been identified as high utilizers of acute psychiatric care wherein traditional clinic-based services are not adequate.  The client caseload is complex based on the severity of the mental illness, co-morbidities, and resistance to standard treatments. Treatment interventions are innovative and highly individualized.  Clients are referred to the MHICM program from the outpatient psychiatry clinics and the inpatient psychiatric units.

    The major duties and responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

    • The primary responsibilities of this position are to provide intensive case management services, continuous quality improvement activities,  evaluation/consultation, psychosocial assessments, patient groups, individual therapy,  placement services, and referrals to various community agencies and hospital services to MHICM clients. 
    • The senior social worker in MHICM functions at a fully autonomous level.  While working in the community, there is no immediate supervision or ready access to consultation.  The senior social worker must appropriately assess, plan, and implement immediate response in situations that may have the veteran or the social worker at risk of harm. 
    • The senior social worker will assess need for hospitalization, and frequently will complete admission documentation.
