Social work managers play a critical role in leading high performing health and human service organizations. These leaders develop a vision for social impact, inspire staff, and engage their organization in meaningful quality improvement. As we reflect on Mental Health Awareness month, we recognize that social work managers have the potential to make a significant impact in the lives of their clients with behavioral health needs. Such efforts are especially impactful for individuals who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, as they are more likely to have complex behavioral health and physical needs and face other social challenges.
Resources for Integrated Care has developed the following resources that may be of use to leaders in the field of social work in their efforts — and the efforts of their teams — to promote coordination and the principles of person-centered care:
1. What To Expect When You’re Self-Managing: A Client Handout For Behavioral Health Providers (in both English and Spanish)
2. Tip Sheets for Navigators (in both English and Spanish)
We hope that these are useful and invite you to visit Resources for Integrated Care (https://www.resourcesforintegratedcare.com/) for additional resources.
