The work day included charting, meeting with multiple clients for hour long sessions, organizing for groups and or helping in the milieu.
MHP was a place where I learned about the Psychosocial Rehabilitation Model, Assertive Community Treatment Model, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and other evidence based practices.
I enjoyed and appreciated my co-workers and supervisors and the amount of support they were always willing to provide.
Difficult situations would arise with clients from time to time and having minimal resources could often be a struggle.
The most enjoyable aspect of this job was seeing clients succeed and simply being able to spend time with them.
