Excellent place to build therapeutic relationships with members
PRIMARY THERAPIST AT CRISIS HOUSE (Current Employee) – Benton, AR – November 8, 2017
Committed to working with chronically mentally ill adults. As with most 24/7 outpatient programs, sometimes very fast-paced and sometimes slower. Employees committed to the company and it's service mandates.
Employees supportive of each other; many long-term employees
Sometimes stressful working with severely mentally ill adults.
Bouncer (Current Employee) – Hooksett, NH – November 18, 2017
I want to work here because I am going to get experiences working with other people.Also can use skills for living. I would learn to help other and communicate with other. A typical day at work is helping the people communicate with your code work and boss.I can management by keeping this in order.I think that workplace culture everyone learns something of each other.The hardest part of the jobs if the person doesn't communicate well the animation doesn't get through.I most enjoyed the part about the job is working with other people.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Oxford, AR – October 10, 2017
In the morning the members would watch the world news after eating breakfast. Then they would attend therapy with their therapist in a group for about 50 minutes. Usually around 11 there would be a Program group . Lunch at home at 12. From one until 330 there would be Program groups for the members to attend. During these program groups the members would learn more about their mental illness and how to deal with it. Learn how to manage their money. Learn about better hygiene.
Stable and organized environment that rehabilitates.
Residential Trainer Train (Former Employee) – Benton, AR – August 2, 2017
The staff was supportive of residents and employees. You are given opportunities to advance in the company and let your degrees and knowledgeable background help you excelerate and be a help to the residents on their road to recovery.
No breaks, and a lot of standing and moving around
THERAPIST (Former Employee) – Benton, AR – July 5, 2017
Population is very demanding. Learned to multitask and set firm boundaries upfront. Culture of the workplace is fair if you stick to your position and avoid the gossip. Hardest part of the job is avoiding burnout. The most enjoyable part of the job is witnessing / assisting in a breakthrough with your clients.
Indeed is very simple to use and I Am Hoping I get employment very soon
Kitchen Help (Former Employee) – Conway, AR – May 26, 2017
I am a very hard working kindhearted individual. I learn quickly and am very interested in working for you. I was holding out for 11 dollars an hour but 13 would be nice. Try and stay positive. Focus on the good things
Case Manager/MHPP (Former Employee) – Clinton, AR – May 26, 2017
As an MMHP, you are expected to work beyond your capabilities with very little training. MHPP's are not the same as therapists, but we are expected to take on very similar responsibilities. Management is awful. They are not very sympathetic and provide very little constructive criticism. When it comes down to it, all they care about is how much money they bring in.
Mental Health Paraprofessional (Former Employee) – Conway, AR – May 14, 2017
My experience working at Birch Tree was mostly good although the job can become very overwhelming if self-care is not practiced. If you're able to build a good and strong relationship with the members at Birch Tree, the work can be very rewarding.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Conway, AR – May 4, 2017
Expectations of admin are unrealistic. Once had a great workplace culture, now employees are just numbers. Pay can be competitive depending on what you have been paid in the past, however pay cap is far too low. Therapist are out of touch with real word scenarios and their treatment plans reflect this.
Progam Coordinator/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Conway, AR – May 1, 2017
Effectively communicate your needs and want. Check and read emails daily. Keep things professional and supportive with clients and co-worker. Ask questions and take documentation training seriously. Documentation can be the most stressful and hardest part of the job.
Fail to practice what they preach. No policies or procedures followed.
xxxx (Current Employee) – Benton, AR – February 13, 2017
Definitely not a good place to work. They protect their own. They say they are about recovery and helping the members live independently. But, it's all about handicapping them and making them dependent on Birch. No policies or procedures can be found in writing. Rules are made up as they go. SAD!
Recovery Advocate (Current Employee) – Malvern, AR – September 1, 2016
A typical day is addressing the members needs. Providing interventions when members are in a crisis situation. My co-workers and I worked together as a team. Whenever there was a misunderstanding it was address peacefully. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the accomplishments of the members.
