Really enjoy my job as a caseworker. Helping people to realize their potential and make their dreams a reality.
Case Manger (Current Employee) – Perryville, MO – March 6, 2015
At my job at the Community Counseling Center, I work with those who have a mental health diagnosis. I work with people on their treatment plans. IE, working on a health goal, working on how to be more assertive, working on how to have better coping skills. Currently some of the work I am doing to advocate for my clients, is for one who has a conservator over his funds, due to his lack of knowledge of where and who was taking his money. This client and I have worked very closely together to get his 20,000 loans forgiven. This client and I have created a mock budget and will follow it for an extended amount of months. At the end of the six months, this client will be able to be in control of his finances again. I also work closely with two clients of mine who have MS, to gain awareness in our small town community of Perryville, MO. I am highly motivated and very passionate about social work. I enjoy helping others realize their potential and connecting them with resources or coping skills to make their dreams a reality.
The hardest part about my job is self-care. I have to remind myself to always make sure I have time for myself and that it does not all go to the job and my clients.
My co-workers and management work collaboratively together to inform each other on the latest mental health news, and new ways to work with clients that is the most effective for them.
I enjoy being able to see my clients progress in their treatment plans, and to give them back hope in their lives.
