Client Description of Situation (use quotes from the client and behavioral descriptions as much as possible)
"My name is Sara Moore. I am 36 years old and single. I’ve struggled with depression most of my life. I’ve tried more treatments and more medications than you could believe... Finally, I found a therapist who was willing to take the time to help me find a combination of therapy and medication that worked... Then the bottom fell out of my world. The bank downsized and I was laid off... I’ve been living on my savings and they are almost gone. I can feel myself sinking into depression again... I’ve started to drink to help me sleep." Sara has a long history of battling depression but has found a treatment plan that worked for her, showing her ability to engage with therapeutic interventions positively. The loss of her job has significantly impacted her mental health, demonstrating the close link between her employment status and psychological well-being.
Client Needs (use quotes from the client and behavioral descriptions as much as possible to validate and support your observations)
"I lost my health care and couldn’t afford to see my therapist or pay for my medication." Sara urgently needs access to mental health services and medication management, which are critical for her to maintain the progress she has previously made in managing her depression. "I am having trouble getting employment... Sometimes, it is too hard to make eye contact or I start to sweat." Sara is experiencing significant anxiety during job interviews, which is hindering her ability to secure employment. Support for developing coping strategies and confidence-building measures could be beneficial. "I have no health care and no way to get my medication." Immediate assistance is needed to re-establish her access to healthcare services and medication, essential for her mental health stability. "If I can’t get a job as a loan officer, I’d like to explore other job options. Maybe I could take some courses at a community college." Sara has shown interest in seeking out new job prospects and possibly pursuing additional education. She is willing to adjust her career trajectory, demonstrating resilience and a proactive attitude toward addressing her cu
ent obstacles.
Client Strengths:
-Sara's self-awareness and proactive approach to seeking help indicate a high level of motivation to improve her situation. Her previous success in managing depression with a combination of therapy and medication reflects her ability to engage with and benefit from mental health treatment.
- Holding a college degree and having professional experience as a loan officer demonstrate her intellectual capability and work ethic.
- Sara's openness to exploring new career paths and further education suggests adaptability and a willingness to grow and learn, despite cu
ent hardships.
- Openness to change and learning: Expressed interest in exploring new job opportunities and further education.
In my capacity as a Nurse Practitioner at the WSCC, I will be responsible for collaborating closely with Sara to evaluate her physical health requirements, facilitating her access to essential medication, and coordinating with mental health services to ensure a holistic approach to her well-being. It will be crucial to formulate a wellness plan that encompasses monitoring Sara's mental health condition, providing support for her employment endeavors, and exploring educational prospects. This will play a pivotal role in helping her attain stability and happiness, which are her ultimate goals.
