Compassionate, Caring work envirorment that strives on team work
COMMUNITY INTEGRATION COUNSELOR AMHC (Current Employee), Caribou, ME – December 16, 2014
Pros: i make my own schedule
Cons: no paid holidays
I spend most of my time in the community with individuals who have severe and persistent mental health issues. I connect them with community resources to help fit each individual as the needs arise. I also teach different skills; coping, communication, vocational and hygiene/self care. Management and coworkers are helpful and there when needed. The hardest part of my job is having to tell someone that they no longer meet the qualifications for services and both you and the client feel that services are still needed. I enjoy the fact that I am able to help people and have a positive impact on their lives. I like seeing the progress people can make with guidance and support.
