Therapeutic mentoring (TM)

Therapeutic mentoring (TM) services help children or teens under the age of 21 with their daily living, social, and communication needs. These services help children and teens learn new skills, make functional progress, and succeed in social situations. TM services provide supervision, support, coaching, and training in the areas of:

  • Age-appropriate behaviors
  • Interpersonal communication
  • Functional skill building
  • Problem solving and conflict resolution
  • Interaction with other children, teens, and adults

How to get TM services

TM services are hub dependent, meaning they require referral from a clinical-hub provider — an outpatient, in-home therapy, or intensive care coordination provider — who coordinates the child or teen’s care and works together with other service providers.

With a clinical hub in place, the TM provider can call one of our behavioral health care managers at 888.257.1985 (TTY: 711) for TM services authorization.

To find a TM service provider in your area, please see our Therapeutic mentoring (TM) provider guide.
