MENTAL HEALTH ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 23, 2012
My typical day was assessing the youth in a mental, emotional & behavioral setting. I learned that this job is not meant for everybody & you really have to have a hear to work with disturbed children. My co-workers were okay as long as you didn't make them mad. The hardest part of this job is keeping your cool when a child attacks you & your not getting any assistance from your unit co-workers.
helping children that wanted to be helped, pretty good pay, set schedule
not open door policy when it came to your management staff, not having the staff safety as a point of interest, a lot of hear say on the unit

Shift worked as in independent living environment, teachable moments around the clock. Very important to provide nurturing during the shift. Management was objective with needs of staff. Hardest part of job was keeping the house stable with no physical occurrence. Enjoy making a different in the rclient life.
