Who Can Be a Member?

What can I expect?

You will talk with a Care Coordinator, a Registered Nurse, or a Peer Support Specialist about your current health, wellness, and emotional support needs. Your team will assist in coordinating your health care services. Instead of treating a single aspect of your health, such as depression or diabetes, we focus on the connection between the mind and body.

Holistic health refers to the whole person - your physical health, mental health, your living situation, and social supports that impact your overall health and wellness.

 

Who will I work with?

Your Peer Support Specialist has personal experience with successful recovery from behavioral heath challenges and has special training to provide support to you. Your Peer Support Specialist can help you identify recovery strategies from the perspective of someone who has "been there, done that."

Your Care Coordinator can help make certain you receive the community support and services you need to be successful. They also make certain all your health care providers have the information they need to provide the best quality care for you. They help make sure your funding for services remains available.

Your Nurse Care Manager will work with you to develop a plan to support your overall wellness. They will work with your primary care physician, behavioral health provider, and others to help coordinate your whole health and to assist you in your health goals.
