The social worker as case manager for persons with mental disabilities

The crown jewel in the modern Swedish disability reform is a special rights’ law from 1993, the Disability Act. However there is considerable underutilisation of services in accordance with this act, especially among the mentally disabled. A project has been undertaken at a psychiatric clinic in the middle of Sweden in order to activate the social workers of the clinic in motivating their patients to apply for support in accordance with this act. The results are discussed from a bureaucratic ethics perspective. The study demonstrates that the social workers have shown understanding of the political intentions of the reform, a will to pursue the implementation of it and also an ability to act as case managers for the mentally disabled, motivating them to use their legal rights to support.
