A critical dimension of innovation in mental health care is to provide integrated care for specific target groups. This requires a vision of shared care across the facilities. Case management as an alternative care model provides a framework for guiding patients through a network of services. The practical implementation of case management depends on the specific needs of the target group and the degree in which the local facilities are fulfilling these needs. This article discusses the different case-management models described in the literature and considers the feasibility and advisability of case management in the Belgian Mental Health Care.
