Chrysalis helps those with mental illness find and keep jobs—and one Chrysalis staffer learned from the case manager that Bob’s situation might be challenging. It wasn’t any sort of unpleasantness on Bob’s part, it was his intense shyness and sensitivity.
But the social symptoms of Bob’s mental illness were not going to stop him from pursuing his goal of getting a job. Sue, the Operations Manager at a large department store, was wonderful. In interviewing him she drew him out, was gentle and encouraging, and gave Bob the position as a backroom associate—a job that he has held for over six months now. Working has made Bob ready to engage, joke, become more financially independent—he’s even saving for a car.
Chrysalis helps people achieve their work goals.
