We have become more aware of the many requirements that individuals with mental illness demand to be well. We often talk about medication, family counseling, socialization, and how important they are.
All of these are extremely important when it comes to mental well-being, but care management seems to be the most overlooked service. Many people associate care management services with those who are older or have chronic medical conditions.
While care management is a great option for these issues, we also recognize the need for intensive care management for people with a mental illness. People with mental illness regardless of the type may seek help from Village Counseling and Wellness center as they offer a variety of DBT skills therapies and programs to deal with all sorts of mental disorders.
The need for advocacy and intensive care management for severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression is well-known.
We see families with loved ones suffering from a mental illness seeking immediate help. They should remember that a mental illness is much like a physical condition that requires constant care. However, you can't live a normal life with a mental disorder. You will need extra care. As family members, it is important that you recognize your role in helping your loved one recover. Your loved one will recover faster if you are involved.
A care manager can be a great asset in helping your loved one manage their mental illness. The care manager will conduct an initial assessment of your loved ones' needs and goals and then explore the possibilities for services that can enhance their lives. The care manager will examine the emotional, psychological, social, and physical well-being of your loved one and identify any gaps.
Your family member might have schizophrenia and may have been in and out of the hospital multiple times while not taking their medication. This means that your loved one has likely suffered from psychotic events, which can lead to severe impairment of functioning. This is why. Home care services may be necessary to aid with daily activities. Every case is unique, and some cases are more severe than others.
A common situation for care management is when your adult child is recently diagnosed with a mental disorder and you, as parents/family members, don't know where to begin. This is when the care manager takes over and coordinates all of the initial care. This is when our family members often feel a sense of relief.
They often say, "I don't know how I would have begun this process without you." The individual also benefits from a care manager, who acts as a support system. They know they have someone to listen to their wishes and needs.
