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 or teens, and adults

TM services do not require prior authorization. A TM provider can call one of our behavioral health care managers at 888.257.1985 (TTY: 711) for more information.

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