Comment of the Week
“Well, that’s a good question. I work with severely mentally ill people, I am now a supervisor so I am not on the “front lines” any longer. It is a challenging field with low pay (for awhile my daughter’s hazard pay at Starbucks equaled what I was getting paid as a case manager with a degree). It is emotionally draining as you attempt to help others with MAJOR problems that are repetitive and not take them on, we see people we have worked with for years die (whether from medical reasons, overdose, drugs, or murder) and have to move forward. I know we have always been the forgotten front lines because most people see mental illness as a blight on society but lately that is even more clear. My car managers pickup people in the community who are in the middle of a pyschiatric crisis and don’t know if they have been exposed, discharge from hospitals and transport home (whether they have been exposed or not, de escalate them and keep them in the room with us, again not knowing if they are exposed or not. We are the forgotten front lines.
