Case Management Services
"Providing help, creating hope."
Community Integration Services (CIS) is a mental health program, licensed by the State of Maine Department of Health and Human Services. Our team of qualified mental health professionals provides community support and assistance to consumers with a mental health diagnosis in a home or community-based setting. We utilize a strengths-based philosophy and believe that consumers are the experts in their own lives.
We offer a variety of services to help people remain as independent as possible in the community, minimize the need for hospitalization, transition to independence, reduce cycles of instability and promote recovery. Our staff are trained in trauma-informed systems of care and are co-occurring capable.
The primary purpose of the CIS program is to provide services either directly or through referrals to other area providers and programs. We help people to understand and cope with the stressors they face, to develop skills to achieve and maintain the highest level of independence, and locate and maintain appropriate living situations to maximize independence and improve their emotional health.
