Comforting and sometimes sad place to work, but always hopeful
Peer Specialist (Current Employee) – Wheat Ridge, CO – August 17, 2017
I learned so many things and finished so many courses, ie; Mental Health First Aid, Trauma Care, Suicide Prevention, Spirituality, and so many more. I felt at ease there, and so hopeful for my clients, as they started their recovery. Some clients did not work out and walked away, as they were not ready to begin their journey to recovery. Sometimes that happens, but usually they come back and began again, and they are always given that "second" chance. Because, that is what recovery is all about.
Great benefits, and the pure joy of helping people

JCMH is a good place to work at, it can sometimes be stressful, but overall it is a good place to be. It strives for excellent customer service and making sure that the patients are heard, and get everything they need.

I enjoy working for JCMH and can say that there is a healthy culture and solid teams and experience within the agency. Respect, interest in individual employees and their needs and facilitating training is valued here to provide the best care for clients.
Can't tell you... (Current Employee) – Lakewood, CO – February 4, 2017
Staff at JCMH truly care about clients. Immediate supervisors/managers are great, but the top doesn't really know what is necessary. I have an example, but cannot explain, as it would compromise my identity. I love working here though and believe in what they are doing. JCMH also gives out cost-of-living raises regardless if they can offer real raises because they do care about their employees. If positions are eliminated they will find a place for you to work in another location/job, doing their best not to put anyone out of a job! Fabulous company that I highly recommend!
Company cares about workers & staff cares about clients
Top level bosses disconnected with reality of bottom
Lot of things offered for a non-proft; takes care of employees & clients
Professional (Current Employee) – Wheat Ridge, CO – July 8, 2016
I have worked in many organizations in my career and Jefferson Center provides many things for profit organizations don't. Generous benefit offerings that are better than some larger organizations. They offer a voluntary Wellness program that matches to the culture of whole wellness for clients and staff and has about 80% participation rate (unheard of). While salaries are not high, they are competitive and it is about the work we do. The culture is really supportive of a work/life balance and wellness. People say hello to you who you don't know..love that.
The company really tries hard to do what is right for our clients/community, employees and is financially responsible so we can continue to provide the quality services we offer. It is a difficult to balance these items and I respect an organization that takes such care to listen and act on these difficult and compelling areas.
Licensed Therapist (Former Employee) – Inside facility - all throughout. – April 13, 2016
Therapists have little backup/support from mgnt. Training for staff is almost nil, and the less education required for a position, the less training they get. Scheduling is grueling - literally wears staff down, makes them ill. Upper mgnt. make it clear that they do not give rat's patooty re staff complaints. In fact when staff express any discontent, mgnt. threaten their jobs. ALL research in this area have findings (re this type of labor relations) that predict serious problems directly related to poor relations.
Internship-Access/Emergency (Former Employee) – Independence St, Wheat Ridge, CO – September 30, 2015
Jefferson Center for Mental Health is a great place to work. Teams are close and interact well within the team. There is many various trainings offered regularly that is free. Pay is low, such as you would expect at a non-profit.
