  • • Comprehensive care management
  • • Care coordination
  • • Health promotion and wellness
  • • Comprehensive transitional care
  • • Patient and family support
  • • Referral to community and social support services
  • The Behavioral health homes overview (DHS-6307) (PDF) provides additional information.
