Our Case Management programs assist individuals in meeting their basic needs while fostering empowerment, self-determination, and personal growth. Staff collaborate with each client to create a personalized recovery plan by focusing on life skills.
Caminar's intensive case management provides a range of services to every client, from our most fragile clients in Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) to our most independent clients in the Wellness and Recovery Action Plan Program (WRAPP), and everything in between.
Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) was launched in August 2016 and uses the Full Service Partnership “whatever it takes” approach to support individuals with serious mental health conditions as they transition from inpatient care to outpatient living. The program provides 24/7 intensive mental health services, housing support, and life skill development. AOT was established following San Mateo County’s adoption of Laura’s Law (Assembly Bill 1421), which allows counties to order people with severe mental illness who aren’t otherwise connected with services into assisted outpatient treatment.
Full Service Partnership (FSP) provides services to some of San Mateo County's most fragile individuals and integrates streamlined, holistic health care utilizing the best-practice model of assertive community treatment. The team includes the added benefit of medical clinic services and a 24-hour on-call emergency response service.
Closely connected to our FSP program, our Recovery, Empowerment And Community Housing (REACH) also serves San Mateo's severely mentally ill individuals but is a step down from FSP. REACH is an innovative and highly successful program that provides services to people who benefit from a high level of assistance to achieve their life goals. REACH pioneered hiring peer support staff to act as recovery role models to REACH participants, most of who live in their own apartments and participate in their community. This program also has medical clinic services and a 24-hour on-call emergency response service.
A step down from REACH is our New Ventures program which provides personalized rehabilitation services to people who need support while they develop and work towards accomplishing their life goals. Services are provided in the community and based upon an individualized treatment plan that focuses on strengths and abilities. The program helps individuals maintain housing by helping to develop daily living skills. New Ventures collaborates with Caminar’s Supported Education and Jobs Plus programs to encourage the achievement of vocational and educational goals.
Wellness, Recovery, and Partnership Program (WRAPP) is a program specifically designed to enhance full recovery and community integration for our most independent clients. While in most programs, people who have achieved a high degree of recovery are often given few—if any—services, this program provides focused attention and encouragement to individuals who have a lot of success going on in their lives. It concentrates on the development of natural supports and accessing self-help opportunities. Participants develop Wellness Recovery Action Plans (Mary Ellen Copeland’s relapse prevention and wellness tool) and begin to gain confidence in their ability to reach for the stars—a career, meaningful relationships, a community of friends.
