Case Managers to Care Coordinators: Updating a Job Title in Honor of the Dignity of Those We Serve and the Legacy of Jay Mahler

In celebration of Mental Health Awareness Month and the legacy of Jay Mahler, Hume Center is proud to announce that we have changed the titles of our Case Managers to now be called Care Coordinators. Our Care Coordinator positions also include Peer Specialists, Family Partners, Housing Specialists, Substance Use Specialists, Rapid Resolution Specialists, and Housing Navigators. Of the several reasons for this change, one of the driving forces is our agreement with this statement that Jay Mahler famously advocated: "I am not a case. I am do not need to be managed."
We are excited about this upgrade to more a empowering job title, as it better reflects the dignity of those we serve, their agency in their lives, and their expertise in their suffering, healing, and recovery.

Love Conquers All: A World Premier Film Event to Celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month!

We invite and encourage you to attend the Love Conquers All film premiere, which the Hume Center is sponsoring, that is in celebration of mental health awareness month. 
Inspired by real life struggles, Love Conquers All is a film that explores the effects of trauma and turmoil on an individual’s mental state. This film was created first and foremost to illuminate the topic of mental health. It also emphasizes the importance of being aware of your own mental journey, and being willing to seek help when needed.
In conjunction with musical performances, live art, and the world premiere of the film, this event will also include a panel of health professionals and entrepreneurs who will answer questions about and provide insight into the topic of mental health, and the ways in which it affects our everyday lives. Therefore, outside of entertainment, this event will serve as a community driven, solutions based intervention regarding the culture and realities of mental health.
