COORDINATING SERVICES

To meet the needs of our clients, Essex County Mental Health Clinic coordinates services with the following intensive services:

Adult & Children Single Point of Access (SPOA) provides support in the home and the community for children, adolescents, and adults whose emotional disabilities disrupt their capacity to function in educational, social vocational, and interpersonal areas. Support includes case management to identify needs, access, and monitor services in mental health, medicine, socialization, education, and financial entitlement. Transportation, respite, family support, and other services may be offered as well. To access SPOA services, please complete the appropriate adult or child SPOA application. Return the application to our Elizabethtown Clinic.

Health Home Care Management aims to maintain individuals in the community at the most productive level possible by assisting in identifying, advocating for, and accessing needed medical, psychosocial, financial, educational, employment, community-based mental health services, and other services that will reduce hospitalizations and reliance on emergency psychiatric services. To access Health Home Care Management services, please complete the adult SPOA application, which can be found on the Additional Resources page of this website.
