Intensive Outpatient Behavioral Health Options

(other than Group Therapy)

Anyone 18 or older who has been diagnosed with a serious mental illness may work with a VCSB Case Manager (CM) in the planning and coordination of treatment. A CM is a trained professional who will help you get connected to the services and benefits you need to increase independence in your life. 


A case manager may provide some counseling-type support and some CMs are trained counselors. However, the case manager may refer you to an ongoing licensed counselor, if needed.
