Provides assessment, referral and coordination services for people with mental health needs and disabilities. CICS is made up of 15 counties that work together to develop support for people looking for help with mental health or developmental disabilities. Each county has a service coordinator that will help you find and apply for programs and services to reach your goals. CICS is also able to pay for services for eligible individuals.
Services Coordination is designated as the "single entry point" for people with disabilities. CICS Policies seek to provide individualized supports that ensure choice, empowerment, and community integration for people with a mental illness, an intellectual disability, or other developmental disabilities, while effectively managing costs. The Services Coordination process includes determining eligibility, assisting with referrals to service providers, monitoring services, tracking all service costs, and establishing a quality assurance program.
