We are recruiting for a Comprehensive Community Services Case Manager, called a CCS Service Provider, to join our team. This is part-time position that provides services in Wood County, Wisconsin.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), “CCS is a program that helps individuals of all ages live their best life by providing support that addresses their unique needs related to mental health and substance use. CCS is intended to assist individuals who are in need of care outside of inpatient settings, but who may have ongoing needs that if left unaddressed, could result in hospitalization during times of crisis.”
CW Solutions CCS Service Providers serve diverse clients by providing mental health management services to individuals, their families and natural supports in both individual and group settings. To be effective, the service provider works with individuals in their homes and communities.
