The Special Populations Division is comprised of four units. Each of these units provide distinct, yet related, services. The Mental Health-Core Service Agency performs planning and funding of service development for areas not otherwise covered in the public mental health system. Services include funding for the uninsured. The Personal Care program provides in-home practical help to chronically ill persons to allow them to stay in their homes and to live independently, as long as possible. The program is developed for long-term maintenance of patients at risk of institutionalization. Adult Evaluation and Review Services provides assessments for frail adults at risk of institutionalization. This unit develops comprehensive plans of care to allow the client to remain in their home. The Developmental Disabilities program provides case management to eligible residents having a developmental disability or suffering a severe disability occurring prior to the age of 22 years. The goal is to assist the individual to achieve optimal integration into society.
