    So, What Does It Take to be a Case Manager?

    Effective case management is an essential component in the successful treatment of mental illness. This training is designed to enlighten professionals who are not fully familiar with the role and duties of a Case Manager as well as to remind Case Managers of the importance of the many responsibilities that they have and why they do what they do. Starting with a definition of case management, this workshop will encompass new and creative ways of introducing and describing the many valuable concepts and duties of a Case Manager.
