When should I get a case manager? Many of my posts come directly from questions I receive every day from parents who have a special needs child, family member, or friend who is in need of support services. One of the questions have been getting recently is “When should I get a case manager?” I’ve heard parents say they have been told that their child didn’t need a case manager until they graduate from high school. Of course, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Some feel that they should get case management soon after an official diagnosis. I tend to agree with the latter. Obtaining support early is critical to getting the adequate care. This is especially true in cash strapped states where mental health and developmental services are limited.

Since Case Management Week is celebrated the 2nd week of October and this newsletter is released the 3rd week of the month, it seems that I always have to wish you a belated Happy National Case Management Week. However this year, I would like to take the opportunity to extend National Case Management Week to a “Month”. Why not? That way I can wish you a “Happy Case Management Month” instead of a belated Happy Case Management Week.
You deserve recognition for all the important contributions you make throughout the year! Your dedication, commitment, and passion for working with patients/clients and their families to educate, empower, and enable them to make informed decisions – moving them towards wellness. This makes a tremendous difference in their lives and is also invaluable to the health care delivery system by improving the quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of care. Case Managers act as advocates, educators, coordinators, facilitators, navigators, and resource managers to help patients/clients understand and manage their condition, find and gain access to services, and obtain high quality, cost-effective care. That sounds like it deserves a month-long recognition to me. How about you?

Happy #throwbackthursday with baby case manager picture! It's been 3 years since I started case management and still alive today. You're probably wondering why I am doing an IG for mental health and trauma. To explain the mental health part, I just love the subject both as a case manager and as someone personally invested in it.
I decided I want to be in the mental health field after taking several college courses and doing internships for both inpatient and outpatient care. Although working in the mental health field is tough, I love undertanding the complexities of it and how I get to be part of someone's healing journey. I dug deep in the subject after realizing how close it hit home with my family, friends, and even me. Just knowing that makes me want to learn mental health not only from an academic + professional perspective but a personal one too.
I am happy that people are becoming aware of mental health. Let us work together for it to be widely accepted and to break the stigma behind it. Any fellow mental health workers/QMHPs here? Psych students? Advocates? Enthusiasts? I would love to connect with you!

CiCie is the Lead Prescription Assistance Program (PAP) Case Manager at the DMC location. We asked CiCie why she loves being a #casemanager , "Case Managers have one of the toughest but most rewarding jobs in the human services field. The main reason I chose this field was to give back that was given to me when I needed assistance. I guess you can say I want to give back to my community. Case managers are a major part of the support team, at times we take the lead role in coordinating services."
Thank you CiCie for all that you do for Health Services of North Texas.
