Dear Mr. Beasley,
I knew I wanted to work in the mental health field at an early age because I witnessed my brother, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia, suffer in near silence since no one seems to know what to do to help him. He is so much better now with the proper treatment and medications, but without proper intervention later in life, he would still be suffering greatly from his disease today.
Your job posting for a mental health case manager caught my immediate attention because of the key requirements involved. I have a bachelor's degree in social work and have managed a diverse range of cases involving children, adults, and the elderly in need. I discovered that your clinics offer a large range of mental health services to the community on a sliding scale to accommodate all income levels. That appeals to me enormously because my brother was denied proper care due to our family's financial circumstances. I have tried to help as many individuals as possible with their mental health issues, and the satisfaction in doing so exceeded my expectations.
I have worked as a case manager for the free New Orleans community mental health care clinic for over five years. I have participated in nearly every task necessary in the clinic. Your private clinic appears to offer even more services and a better facility than my current employer could ever offer due to reduced funding. I have coordinated care and transportation, made referrals and appointments with outside facilities when necessary, assisted the clinicians and physicians with patient care, and discussed solutions for individual mental health care.
I would love to bring my caring skills and experience to your well-respected facility and assist you with the many demands involving managing mental health cases. I appreciate you taking the time to review my correspondence and attached resume, and hopefully, you will consider selecting me to become an important part of your team. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to talk with you further about my unique skill sets and experience which appear to match up well with your listed needs. Please contact me at your convenience to speak personally with you.
Again, thank you for taking time out of your busy day, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
