Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – February 9, 2017
It's definitely okay. It's hard to work with the consumers at times, they don't always like to hear what you try to explain to them. Getting yelled at, ridiculed, etc. But when they show their appreciation for us being there it makes it worth it and know we make a difference.
Clinical Intern (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – January 12, 2017
My supervisor during my internship was amazing at helping develop counseling skills and fostered environments that were conducive to my growth as a counselor. The staff were supportive and open to teaching. I would recommend this as an internship for anyone.
Supportive team, many learning opportunities, very involved with community mental health, if you chose to work there they will do licensing hours for free
Looking for a M.S. Therapist position is almost impossible for someone fresh out of college
Medical Scribe (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – December 17, 2016
This is a good place to start clinical experience. It requires psycho-social attention as well as respect to each patient.
1. Every day I start the day by preparing notes for every patient on my provider's schedule. During each appointment, I type up the whole medical notes for my provider to finalize. 2. I learned how to manage my time and organize notes. I learned how to listen for important pieces of information that may be medical/psychiatric relevant. 3. Other scribes are very friendly and nice. 4. The hardest part of the job is to correctly record the information that is medically/psychiatric relevant, as English is my third language. 5. The most enjoyable part of the job is that although English is not my first language, I learned it everyday and make improvement everyday.

If you want a chaotic company and don't care about anything else, this is your company, they will wine and dine you until you prove that you know more, and they will get rid of you before your evaluation before the 6 months even ends. So don't act like you know anything, and just be very passive, yes sir and yes ma'm.
Clinical Case Manager (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – October 25, 2015
Work day was fast paced with lots of problem solving and crisis management. The team and management was very supportive. I was able to learn and understand the challenges of the client system that I worked with. Working at this company helped me grow in empathy and learn to listen more.
Front Desk - Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – June 25, 2015
There was always plenty of work to do, although employees' job skills are not always matched with their jobs. Co-workers were usually competent and easy to work with; we always tried to support each other, particularly when working with an escalated client. The hardest part of the job was to not allow myself to be frustrated with my job assignment, because I could have done so much more given my BA in Psychology. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping the clients in appropriate ways, knowing that in my small way, I was making a positive difference for them.
Best of all places ever worked, all staff members helpful and understanding
Data Entry Clerk (Current Employee) – 4141 E. Dickenson Pl, Denver, CO 80222 – October 20, 2013
A typical day at work is arriving at 7:15 am my unit is closed when I arrive so I basically begin my work without any other co-workers there until after 8:30am. I have had a chance to slowly grow into using many different computer programs considering I have only 7 years of on hands experience using Microsoft and other programs. I respect the management, they are good people and very understanding of their employees and lenient as well. I have not had any problems with any of the co-workers in my five years of working at the Mental Health Center of Denver. The hardest part of my job is working with a program called SPSS, it is a program working the numbers of statistics. The most enjoyable part of the job I have had at MHCD is having lax time and conversing with the other members of the team I worked with.
Traveling to different clinics and meeting other employees.
volunteer (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – September 12, 2013
A typical day at work was fun and full of new challenges that I used to strengthen my desire to the best volunteer the company has ever had (I learned that it was just as easy done as it is said). The organization's management practices could not be better since it is a non-profit network that deals with at risk adults there are more than enough leaders within the network. My co-workers were mostly nice and if I had an issue with any of them they were usual on the verge of retirement and mean to everyone so I took comfort in knowing that it had nothing to do with me. The hardest part of volunteering at MHCD was managing free time because I was so exciting about assisting the organization that I wanted to never cease being productive for them. The most enjoyable part of volunteering for MHCD was even though I was not receiving a paycheck the organization was willing to treat me as though I was just as productive a member of society as their paid salary employees.
Free Lunch and reference to free events within the city limits.
