We had a meeting recently to discuss what to do about a subpoena we'd all received regarding a client. For several of us, it was our first supbpoena, so the meeting was very helpful at allaying our fears regarding being in court.
One of the case managers who's been there for a decade or so admitted to being very nervous about the upcoming court date. "I'll look over my charting and I'll follow our policy, but I'm pretty worried about it. I've never been subpoened before, and it's freaking me out."
"You'll do great. And if the stress gets too bad, you can always call the crisis hotline," I told him.
"But please call Adjacent County Mental Health's crisis hotline!" our boss suggested.
