Young people are eligible for Therapeutic Mentoring if they are:
- Under age 21
- Currently participating in Outpatient Therapy, In-Home Therapy, or Intensive Care Coordination
- Members of Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership, Network Health or Neighborhood Health Plan
Therapeutic Mentoring cannot be provided as a “stand-alone” service. It must be included as a goal on an individual care plan for youth in ICC, or as a goal on the individualized action plan for a youth in In-Home or Out Patient therapy.
Therapeutic Mentors help youth achieve their behavioral health treatment goals by increasing knowledge and practicing skills
in the real world.
First, Therapeutic Mentors conduct an assessment to ensure that the services is appropriate for the child/young adult. If enrolled, the Therapeutic Mentor will meet regularly with the youth and collaborate
with other providers, such as therapists, ICC’s, and medical professionals.
