Senior Counselor (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – June 5, 2017
This environment was stressful because we worked with troubled youth. However, staff got along well and cared about clients and their families. Staff was given the opportunity to make overtime hours as well as allowed to take time off, to avoid a burnout.
Residential Therapist (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – May 29, 2017
Long hours, very stressful. Kids are awesome when they make progress, but be ready for a tough experience. It is best if you have prior experience with this level of care. Need to have a tough skin to handle rough days with clients and heavy workload.

The most difficult part of this job was learning that mental health challenges can affect everyone. This job also taught me to respect the patients with those challenges. Treat them with care and empathy.
Mental Health Technician (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – September 27, 2016
Some days were good but most days were bad, if you have a team that does not help you out you will hate this job. And management shows a lot of favoritism and if you're not one of their favorites good luck because they won't help you.
You can get allot if overtime
Breaking up fights without help, management not helping out during sticky situations
Mental Health Technician (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – June 7, 2016
At Coastal Harbor I was able to experience and work with children that dealt with problems that ranged from mental, drug, and family issues. I must say that it was challenging, but I learned that I was able to adapt to situations that I never saw myself being involved with in the work place.

Behavioral Specialist (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – September 10, 2015
Pros: Ample OT Real behavioral health experience Work closely with child/adult patients
Cons: Only way to advance is to know someone within the company Staff safety is not top priority Most definitely "profit conscious" No matter how much education you have, the company does not value it Co-workers thrive in a "high-school" environment Very short breaks No real care for those who work on the floor daily with the patients, also known as the "blue shirts" or uniformed workers You are seen as "workers" and not necessarily employees
MENTAL HEALTH TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – February 5, 2015
It's an ok place to work. You will receive your hours and more. The management does show favoritism and other employees are out to get rid of other employees as competition. It's a learning experience.
Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – January 4, 2015
I enjoyed my last position teaching in a full blown hospital setting because there was much therapy for the students I taught. There was no such thing as a typical day as these boys were severely mentally disturbed.
