Mental Health Case Manager Reviews

What is it like working as a Mental Health Case Manager?
Mental Health Case Manager in Dallas:
"High Energy, High Stress, Never a Dull Moment."
Pros: When I am able to truly make a difference in a client's recovery from severe mental illness and I am given the rare opportunity to see a client improve in his functioning and mental health over time, this is a truly rewarding experience.
Cons: My case load is monstrously over sized- I am responsible for over 250 individuals. Everyone in the organization is stretched so thin much of the time that we all have to take on duties that are not technically part of our job descriptions in order to make sure clients are served. We are often unable to give each client as much time and attention as we would like simply because they outnumber us so much.
