The mental health forensic case management program at Erie County Care Management (ECCM) provides mental health services to individuals with a serious mental illness who are involved in all stages of the criminal justice system. Our ultimate goal is to connect former inmates and individuals who are currently in correctional facilities with proper supports and programs to help them accomplish their recovery and wellness goals.
