Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Mentally ill patients have intimate human care.IT ensures that de-institutionalizing patients and ensuring that they have the shortest hospital stay. The success of continuum of care depends on the ability to divert patients from the hospitals to community resources and centres

Case management helps link mentally ill clients with social and medical services; it also helps increase independence and promotes independent living among the mentally ill . Among its goals include decreasing the number of necessary hospitalizations each year

To accomplish this many caseworkers rely on case management models based on evaluation studies . The continuum of care is also referred to as a concept that links the divisions of the Department of Social and Rehabilitation service together, providing clients a means of self support and self care, and refers to the various services that a client may need to move toward self care and a state of equilibrium
