How Budget Cuts Affect the Mentally Ill: A Schizophrenic, a Slain Worker, Troubling Questions

Posted By: wbhazel1 on October 28, 2011 at 10:15 am

This article and the accompanying one review how budget cuts affect the mentally ill. It is clear that we are in a financial morass where decisions must be made.

Here lies the outcome of some economic policies with real life (people) outcomes.The purpose of posting this article is NOT to place blame on any agency or policymaker but just to get us all thinking that we need to get back to our professional roots of appropriate assessment including for safety, treatment and professional care.

The client in this case lived with schizophrenia but he could have had any diagnosis or been that neatly tucked away folder in all of our file cabinets.

I think we need to maintain strong advocacy for not only our clients but ourselves.

We need to always remember the value we bring to the table through our services and ensure that we remain safe to deliver to others tomorrow.

Look not to this as selfish self care but assurance that our client base as a whole remain cared for.
