What is Care Management?
The Student Counseling Center (SCC) offers clinical care management services to provide students with information about on and off-campus resources that can support their wellness and success in school. If it is determined that a student’s needs fall outside of brief treatment in our center, students can meet with a care manager to explore community treatment options. The primary goals of care management are to assist students with locating relevant resources, provide linkage options for long-term therapy and psychiatric care, and provide therapeutic support while students await linkage from SCC brief treatment to long-term care in the community.
All students enrolled at Thomas Jefferson University are eligible for mental health services through the East Falls or Center City Student Counseling Center. These services are provided free of charge to students and fall within a brief treatment model. If students determine they would like to establish long-term mental health care in the community, Welltrack Connect provides a straightforward path for locating care.
Welltrack Connect is a free website designed to help students search for mental health services in the community. The site enables students to search for providers based on desired type of treatment, preferred location, shared availability, in-network insurance eligibility, provider identities, and areas of expertise. Additionally, students can message community providers directly through the Welltrack Connect portal to ask questions or schedule an initial appointment. The Student Counseling Center also uses Welltrack Connect to collaborate with local providers to establish working relationships in settings where students are regularly referred.
If students have questions about how to engage with the community referral process this Welltrack Connect FAQ through Welltrack Connect offers useful tips and templates that can guide you through the process. Welltrack Connect also houses a number of other resources that could be of use outside of mental health care. These can be found on the Welltrack Connect University Resources page after signing in and includes information about where to find rental assistance, how to engage with Pennsylvania’s Medical Assistance program, Ramily Market, JeffSecure, and other resources.
