This chapter describes the roles and responsibilities of the MISSION-VET Case Manager and how it relates to MISSION-VET service delivery. The chapter begins with an overview of the MISSION-VET Case Manager’s responsibilities. Settings in which MISSION-VET can be delivered and implications for case management are then reviewed. The importance of teamwork with the Peer Support Specialist is stressed, and the Case Manager’s role is distinguished from that of the Peer Support Specialist. The Chapter then reviews each of the Case Manager’s primary responsibilities. Because case management is seen as the foundation of the MISSION-VET model, this chapter refers to a number of appendices that will be useful tools for the Case Manager to use as MISSION-VET is implemented.
