Read a Success Story

Paula* has a long history of mental health problems. For many years she had frequent admissions to the local psychiatric unit, as well as many in-patient stays at McFarland Mental Health Center in Springfield. In the past year, Paula has made significant improvements in managing her mental illness. She has learned budgeting and money management skills and no longer requires a payee to help her manage her funds. She has also been able to manage her medications more effectively. She now fills her medication planner on her own, rather than relying on Transitions’ nursing staff to do this for her. As a result of her managing her mental illness more effectively, Paula has been more emotionally stable. This has enabled her to obtain a part-time job in a local fast food restaurant.  Paula enjoys her new job and the extra income her job provides her… She is proud of her accomplishments… and so are we!
