NAMI South Bay Monthly Meeting (Virtual)
Life Adjustment Team Presentation
7:30 PM — Monday, June 20, 2022
Ms. Coulam, MA, LMFT, joined the Life Adjustment Team in 2007 as a Clinical Case Manager. As the Clinical Director, she is responsible for supervising all clinical case managers and the clients they oversee, providing direct clinical services and developing relationships with other clinicians and families.
Mr. Carlson, MA, LMFT, has been with the Life Adjustment Team since August 2014 and started as a Clinical Case Manager in the community-based program, and then in 2018 became the Clinical Director of LAT’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
At our June meeting, Ms. Coulam and Mr. Carlson from the Life Adjustment Team will discuss how Community-Based Case Management helps individuals with mental illness thrive independently in the community. They will also discuss the different levels of treatment in mental health and where Community-Based Case Management and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) fit into those levels. Their stated mission is provide intensive outpatient psychiatric rehabilitation using a community outreach model that brings supportive, evidence-based treatment practices to clients at home and in the community. The Life Adjustment Team understands that families find the mental-health system difficult to navigate when first starting out–it can be overwhelming trying to figure out what level of care you need, who to call, who does what, what places do what–the Life Adjustment Team works to help navigate the system. Ms. Coulam and Mr. Carlson will also give a brief overview of our mental-health-based IOP program.
The meeting will be virtual. Please contact Nami South Bay President, Paul Stansbury (firstname.lastname@example.org) for remote access information.
