A case manager is someone who coordinates your care and gets you access to services that you need. For a lot of clients, this means helping them get to their appointments or scheduling appointments for them. With me its a little different. I can schedule my own appointments and I drive so I get to appointments myself as well. This makes my case manager's job easier in some ways. I need more support in other ways – help with some life skills and someone to talk to besides my therapist. We've gone grocery shopping to work on my anxiety about that and it went really well. We also meet up just to talk, which helps me a lot. Thursday we are meeting at a local restaurant for an hour. Its much needed after how rough my past week has been.
