"Being a bilingual psychiatric case manager has been an incredible experience that has helped me grow as a clinician. Having the opportunity to closely work with our psychiatric providers and sitting in on psychiatric evaluations and follow-up appointments has allowed me to gain a wealth of knowledge regarding psychotropic medication treatment as well as presentations for a plethora of diagnoses that include depressive disorders; anxiety disorders; bipolar spectrum disorder; eating disorders; disruptive, impulse-control, and conduct disorders; and trauma- and stressor-related disorders. Additionally, it has provided me with the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from outpatient therapists." – Miriam C. (Integrated Service Coordination)
"We see individuals and families who are at a loss as to what to do when it comes to mental health. They themselves are struggling with mental illness or someone in their family is struggling and resources are few and far to come by in the area. Waitlists range from a few months to see a therapist to a couple of years to see a psychiatrists that accepts their insurance, or they need to pay out of pocket for the services and have to choose between their mental health or their physical health. We help fill in that gap for these individuals and families to access mental health services in a matter of a couple of weeks sometimes or help provide referrals for agencies that do accept their insurance but are not well known. We help these individuals and families get back to a level of functioning they were previously at before their mental health began to negatively impact their lives." - Sarah W. (SASS Crisis)
"Working at FSA has been an amazing experience for me. The team based atmosphere at FSA has benefited me as a clinician and all of the clients we serve. As such a well-organized nonprofit, we are able to reach many communities and provide high quality services to those in need. Some days can be challenging, but knowing I make a difference keeps me going and coming back each day for more." - Stephanie O. (Family Support Program)
