Program Description:

VOACs Health Home Clinic integrates traditional clinic based services (FSMHC) and community based Rehabilitation services (MHRS) with a case management and care coordination component for people who have serious medical conditions.

Behavioral health data tells us that people who have a serious and persistent mental health diagnosis have a life expectancy that is 25 years shorter than the general population, often due to serious health concerns that may not be effectively managed in traditional medical health care systems.
