Northwestern Pennsylvania Mental Health Case Management

 

Forensic Case Management - Northwestern PennsylvaniaOften times, individuals with mental illnesses end up in jail for minor offenses which could have been avoided if they were properly treated. If they receive the mental health services they need, they are much less likely to go back again.

 

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.
