Are you looking to join a dynamic team focused on providing high quality health care to communities across Brooklyn & Queens? If so, you’ve come to the right place. For over 117 years, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens has been providing quality social services to the neighborhoods of Brooklyn and Queens, and currently offers 160-plus programs and services for children, youth, adults, seniors, and those struggling with mental illness. Catholic Charities provides individuals with serious mental illness, complex medical needs and substance abuse issues with comprehensive care coordination and case management services. Our Targeted Case Management (TCM) team is grant-funded by SAMHSA and operates within our Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn. TCM is a comprehensive, community-based service model for adults with serious mental illness and ensures clients have access to uninterrupted and coordinated behavioral and physical health services while addressing the social determinants of health that impact daily living. TCM addresses a host of issues—housing, food, economic security, medication adherence, linkage with outpatient treatment providers or other community resources and social supports.
The Targeted Case Manager (TCM) will play a pivotal role within the integrated care ecosystem of the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC). The TCM will be part of a specialized team embedded in the CCBHC, targeting services for a high-risk behavioral health population being served under CCNS. The TCM team will adhere to specific SAMHSA regulations and requirements regarding the frequency, scope and duration for working with clients under a Critical Time Intervention model. The CCBHC is based on an initiative to expand Americans’ access to mental health and addiction care in community-based settings. CCBHCs are responsible for providing the following types of services: crisis mental health services; screening, assessment and diagnosis, including risk assessment; patient-centered treatment planning; outpatient mental health and substance use services; primary care screening and monitoring of key health indicators/health risk; targeted case management; psychiatric rehabilitation services; peer support and family supports; intensive, community-based mental health care for members of the armed forces and veterans.
Under the CCBHC model, the Targeted Case Manager (TCM) will work in conjunction with the CCNS CCBHC clinics and will coordinate care across settings and providers to ensure seamless transitions for clients across the full spectrum of health services, including acute, chronic, and behavioral health needs. Duties of the TCM focus on the integration of the care team to serve the client in any appropriate need-based area, including mental health, medical issues, social determinants of health, substance use issues, psychosocial needs, food insecurity, housing instability. The TCM is responsible for high quality targeted case management services that will assist individuals in sustaining recovery, and gaining access to needed medical, social, legal, educational, and other services and supports.
