The Ontario County Forensic Case Management Program is a collaborative effort between Lakeview Health Services and the Ontario County Mental Health Department.
Through this program the Forensic Case Manager works directly with persons in the Ontario County Jail who have been identified as having specific mental health needs.
The Forensic Case Manager works with each participant to assess their needs and then to develop and implement a plan to address those needs.
Working with the participant and in conjunction with Ontario County Mental Health Department staff, the Forensic Case Manager will provide advocacy and networking support to link the individual with community based services.
These may include:
- Residential and housing programs
- Care Management Services
- Vocational and employment programs
- Mental health and substance abuse services
- Medical and dental services
- Social Clubs
- Legal services
Access to the Forensic Case Manager is available through direct referral while incarcerated.
