South Carolina Department of Mental Health

SCDMH Office of Clinical Care Coordination

Care Coordinators provide targeted case management services to qualifying individuals beginning with a comprehensive needs assessment. In the needs assessment, medical, dental, housing, employment, education, behavioral, and other community support needs are identified. Working collaboratively with the client, a Care Coordinator, who is knowledgeable about the local community resources, links the client to those resources. The Care Coordinator continues to monitor the services until goals are met and needs are resolved. Successful transition to community settings and access to needed services are focus points for Clinical Care Coordination services.

Sixty-one Clinical Care Coordination staff provide services in all areas of South Carolina. Each Community Mental Health Center (17 CMHCs statewide), eight satellite clinics, and 3 DMH hospitals (Bryan, Harris, and Hall) has access to Clinical Care Coordination. More Information/Resources:
