Welcome Youth and Families!

Children's Community Mental Health Services and Wraparound Milwaukee provides care and support to youth and families with a child or children who have serious emotional or mental health needs. We utilize a family-centered “Team” approach. In addition to case management services, Wraparound Milwaukee provides a broad range of youth and family support services including traditional behavioral health services, alcohol/other substance abuse counseling and non-traditional support services such as parent assistance and daily living skills.

Care Coordination

Children's Community Mental Health Services and Wraparound Milwaukee contracts with community agencies to provide care coordination services and supports for youth and families. The current care coordination agencies within the Provider Network include:

Wellpoint Care Network (previously known as: Saint A)

Wisconsin Community Services

 

Care Coordination
Youth and families served in all of our programs partner with a Care Coordinator to identify root causes of the challenges they face and create a system of supports by engaging their friends and family alongside professionals from the community and provider network.

 

Child and Family Team
Wraparound Milwaukee employs Care Coordinators who are responsible for convening Child and Family Teams from which a Plan of Care is developed for each child and their family. Care Coordinators meet the youth and family, conduct a strengths-based inventory, convene the Child & Family Team, and develop the Plan of Care based on youth/family needs, goals and formal and informal resources available or needed to support the family.

 

Family Needs and Safety Plan Help Identify Services
Care Coordinators utilize life domains to look at youth and family needs and create safety plans for each youth to ensure there are structured supports and supervision to ensure youth and community safety. Care Coordinators help develop the Plan of Care to guide the delivery of services and treatment. They also are responsible to help the family identify and obtain formal services through the Provider Network to meet mental health, social and other support needs. Monthly Service Authorization Requests (SARs) are entered electronically in the Electronic Record to authorize vendors in the Network to provide specific units of services to families. Plan of Care is reviewed and revised every 90 days.

CCS Provider Agency List

Children's Community Mental Health Services and Wraparound Milwaukee has a broad benefit plan of over 100 different mental health, social and supportive services. To deliver those services in the most flexible and cost effective manner, we have developed a network of community agencies and individual providers to deliver services based on a comprehensive fee-for-service approach. Children's Community Mental Health Services and Wraparound Milwaukee develops service descriptions, standards for all services, and the unit rate. 
 

 

There are currently over 400 agency and individual providers (i.e., psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists) involved in the provider network. These providers will be involved in Team Meetings, and have active roles in the Plan of Care. 

Because these are multiple service providers in the Network for almost every service, families have a great deal of choice related to who they desire to have provide service to their child and family. Oversight of the network related to Quality Assurance is provided by the Children's Community Mental Health Services and Wraparound Milwaukee program directly.
