Case management services cover a wide range of services from foster care to hospice care. However, the two most widely recognized areas of case management are mental health (MH) and intellectual disability (ID) case management. Both MH and ID case management provide the basic functions of linking clients to community resources, coordinating services, and monitoring services. Both require a minimum of an undergraduate degree in psychology, counseling, or a human service related discipline as well as some experience in the field. However, there are some subtle and not so subtle differences in the way the case management services are provided.
