Case management

ashton-bingham-SAHBl2UpXco-unsplashRice County Children’s Mental Health Case Management serves children up to 18 years identified as struggling with a severe emotional disturbance which is having a negative impact in one area of their lives: family, school or social.

We provide an assessment of a child’s emotional and mental health needs and coordinate an extensive and wide ranging number of services and programs to meet these needs. Supports to the families of these children is also available.

The goal of Rice County Children’s Mental Health is to assist families in obtaining services and programs which can help their child become healthier and happier, and to coordinate the efforts of everyone involved with a child. We work with families toward improving a child’s emotional well-being and development, their relationships with family and friends, and their ability to get along with others and function effectively at home, in school and in the community. 

Families which are self-sufficient and capable of meeting their own needs are goals for every family served by Rice County Children’s Mental Health. The program is voluntary; parents and children must be open to participating in.

To apply for the program, a parent(s) should contact an intake social worker at 507-333-3773 (From 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday) to begin the process.
