The administrative case manager will monitor the services for effectiveness and ensure there is benefit to the services as well as serves as an advocate for the individual receiving services.

Student Assistance Program (SAP)

In Bedford and Somerset Counties, every school has a Student Assistance Program (SAP) that is designed to assist school personnel in identifying issues including alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, and mental health issues which pose a barrier to a student’s success. The primary goal of SAP is to help students overcome these barriers in order that they may achieve, remain in school, and advance.
The core of the program is a professionally trained team, including school staff and liaisons from community mental health and drug and alcohol agencies. SAP team members are trained to identify problems and to make recommendations to assist the student and the parent. The SAP team will assist the parent and student to access services within the community as needed.

The SAP team members do not diagnose, treat or refer to treatment; but they may refer for a screening or an assessment for treatment.

Child and Adolescent Service System Program (CASSP)

Children and Adolescent Services System Program (CASSP) focuses on the need for interagency collaboration and coordination across systems in delivering multiple services to seriously emotionally disturbed children /youth and their families. In Bedford and Somerset Counties, CASSP provides a coordinated, comprehensive, child-centered approach for all agencies, schools, and family members to develop, collaborate and coordinate services for children/youth. CASSP assists children/youth involved in more than one child-serving system including but not limited to Juvenile Probation, Children and Youth Services, Drug and Alcohol Services, Schools, etc., to gain access to needed services. A CASSP Coordinator facilitates interagency team meetings, as needed with all involved parties, for the purpose of developing multiagency plans of care for individual children and youth with serious emotional disturbance especially when the current system is not adequately meeting their needs. Family involvement is very important and members present are given the opportunity to discuss their concerns, needs, and expectations.

No fee is associated with CASSP. However, there may be some costs involved for services recommended by the Interagency Team.

Referral is required by agency staff, school personnel, family members, or concerned persons.

The Goals of CASSP include:
  • Promoting the development of a wide array of services to meet the needs of identified children,
  • Integrating multiple services into a well-coordinated system of care to make sure children are receiving the most appropriate services, and
  • Increasing the ability of parents and professionals to work together for the benefit of the child.
CASSP Principles
  • Services are child centered
  • Services are family focused
  • Services are community based
  • Services are planned in collaboration with all systems involved with the child
  • Services are culturally competent
  • Services are least restrictive and least intrusive as possible
