The West RAWC team's goal is to help client’s transition through the system of care and achieve their goals. Our role in the system is to either help the client transition to a higher level of care or transition to the community.
This is achieved by providing case management, therapy, and psychiatric support. Case managers provide skills to help clients improve, linkage to services, and monitor the client’s progress through the system. Therapy can either be individual or group. We utilize support groups, activity groups, and skill groups.
The psychiatric component includes the doctors prescribing medication as well as the nurse providing medication support.
