Kathleen A. Enerlich
Executive Director

Kathleen Enerlich is Executive Director of PerformCare. Currently, this national, full-service behavioral health managed care company is ensuring access to treatment and achieving clinical outcomes through service excellence for approximately 530,000 children and adults in Medicaid, Medicare and commercial plans. Her primary role is to manage all aspects of the PerformCare system in New Jersey, including clinical, member services, operations, executive communications and quality improvement.

Ms. Enerlich, who earned her master's degree in behavioral sciences from Kean University, has served with PerformCare since 2009. Through strategic planning, strong community and associated provider relationships, and the building of cohesive proactive-management teams, she expanded the system access in 2012 to include an additional 16,000 developmentally disabled children and youth in need of substance abuse treatment. Ms. Enerlich is collaborating with the state on the implementation of several new programs under New Jersey's Comprehensive Medicaid waiver. These include behavioral health homes, individual support services, respite, intensive in-home services and crisis stabilization for youth with developmental disabilities.

Prior to joining PerformCare, Ms. Enerlich held several executive-level positions for the state of New Jersey. She was the Chief Executive Officer of the Arthur Brisbane Child Treatment Center, which at the time was the only state-run children's psychiatric hospital. In 2005, she successfully closed the center, transitioning youth to community-based treatment programs, and transferring more than 200 employees to new positions. Ms. Enerlich also served as Deputy Director for the Division of Family and Community Partnership, and for the Division of Children's System of Care, where she had oversight of $400 million in state contracts.

Ms. Enerlich began her career as a youth counselor, providing individual, group and family counseling at NewBridge Services. She went on to devote 18 years to SERV Behavioral Health System, where she held various roles while serving seriously mentally ill adults throughout New Jersey. Most notably, Ms. Enerlich assisted SERV in developing the first group home programs for the state, and consistently maintained high-occupancy rates. And she was instrumental in helping the organization obtain national accreditation from the Joint Committee for Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). Some of her most meaningful work was helping to discharge men and women from Marlboro State Psychiatric Hospital, where many had been institutionalized for up to 20 years.

Today, Ms. Enerlich is fully engaged in working with PerformCare's stakeholders to collaborate across lines of services, and in guiding the dedicated PerformCare team in improving the quality of life for its members and their families by promoting recovery and resiliency.
