The Charlotte White Center (CWC) provides community integration case management services to adults with a diagnosis of a behavioral health disability and in situations where there has been a mental health crisis. These services are intended to connect affected individuals with the skills and resources necessary for them to reduce or recover from behavioral symptoms that negatively impact the person’s quality of life.
Utilizing consumer strengths, our staff works to create a partnership between the individual and their family, identifying and prioritizing areas of concern. This newly formed team works to maximize its potential by determining the individual’s strengths and needs, and the presence or absence of skills and resources necessary for them to achieve their goals.
Our Community Integration workers then monitor the plan to ensure flexibility, so that it remains relevant to the individual’s specific needs as progress occurs and changes develop.
CWC seeks to make the best use of the consumer’s natural support system by using the following strengths based approach:
We encourage referrals from individuals, family members, medical community, case managers, DHHS, service providers, and local hospitals.
Once referrals are received, a CWC staff member will contact you and schedule an appointment for the initial intake. The intake procedure involves gathering all the data necessary to determine eligibility, such as previous evaluations and test results.
