Bernalillo County: Peer Case Management ServicesDeadline: September 14, 2018
Bernalillo County is seeking offerors to provide Peer Case Management Services for individuals 14 years and older who have a primary mental health diagnosis who are having difficulty accessing services, maintaining treatment, or may become disconnected from community supports. The intent is to draw from two case management models when describing the intended intervention; strengths-based case management model, and peer case management model. A strengths-based case management model is an approach that emphasizes the importance of the clients’ strengths, self-direction, active case manager outreach and their relationships with their clients, and utilization of informal help networks (as opposed to agency resources). The peer case management (PCM) model seeks to provide evaluation, organization, assistance, coordination with services, and advocacy for individuals with a primary mental health diagnosis by individuals who have had personal experience with mental health issues.
Amount: This solicitation may fund several program formats at a total cost not to exceed $620,000 per year. The County is interested in using this RFP to fund one or more interventions for two-year contracts with the expectation that some of those programs will be scaled-up and/or funded for subsequent years.
Eligibility: An offeror is defined as any person, corporation, or partnership who chooses to submit a proposal.
Note: A non-mandatory conference will be held on August 30, 2018.
