Love the work environment. You have flexibility to manage your own time. I love having a yearly salary and not hourly pay. Management are fair and friendly. At times lack understanding of the medical model, but are willingly to learn. The hardest part of the job is felling you can never detach from it during the day with all the e-mail, text and phone calls
I am a very busy person and love to stay busy. This job I always am constantly busy there is never a dull moment. Clients are awesome to work with, the employees are awesome to work with. The management listens and understands and tries to work on issues if there are any. The hardest part of the job is learning to seperate yourself from the clients, (I have a huge heart). I love being a nurse and I love what I do every day. Helping people is why I became a nurse.
Mental Health Coordinator (Current Employee) – Worcester MA – August 16, 2015
There is no such thing as a typical day in mental health. I've learned an awful lot about working with people with disabilities, and about myself as a professional while working in the mental health field.
Positive environment in which to work with great people in the field of human development
Family, Consumer and Human Development (Current Employee) – Logan, UT – March 5, 2015
A typical day consists of collecting observational data via digital and VHS recordings of the program in action. I learned a lot about parent-child interactions, engagement, facilitation, and non-intrusiveness. Management is reliable, consistent, and available to help in any way to make the job successful for everyone. I tend to work alongside my direct supervisor and from time to time I interact minimally with co-workers. Co-workers seem eager to learn and help each other out. The hardest part of the job was the training process. It took an extensive amount of time to learn what to observe and how to code certain behaviors. But this served as a positive experience because of the time and energy involved in the training process. It made me a better observer. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I am able to apply what I learn to my own family and parenting style.
Flexible schedule, great people to work with
Sometimes you work alone and if you're a more social person, that can be hard.
Lead Diagnostic Clinician (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – February 2, 2015
In a typical day I provide therapy to children who have experienced trauma. I also conduct comprehensive clinical assessments for children and families. I have lovely, devoted co-workers who are hard working and dedicated to providing evidence-based treatment. The hardest part of my job is listening to often heartbreaking stories of children who are abused or neglected. The best part of my job is the environment of our clinic. Our clinicians are a close-knit group.
Clinical Records Specialist (Former Employee) – Cleveland, Ohio – June 13, 2014
Mental Health Services overall was a very great place to work. The management team was very knowledgeable about there job and very kind to there employee's.The health benefits were great, and if you worked at any of the shelters you did get to eat there when different churches came.The staff was great and I really learned how to understand the homeless population and the diversity in people also it taught me managing skills and people skills even more than what I already had.Everyday it was something new and adventurous but at the same time sad to see so much homelessness with women and children especially
Beautiful Staff to work with
You really have to be a people person to work with Mental Health
On-Call Mental Health Technician (Former Employee) – Springfield, OH – November 19, 2013
As been a long time since I work here. Amazing staff on board. The staff are there to support you and help you grow. The hardest part of the job was the fact that many patient had a hard time being able to pay for their medications. From this place I learned that mental health illness affects many individuals in USA. It is important to raise awareness about mental health, because you never know who needs their help.
Utilization Review Admin. Supervisor (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – June 24, 2013
I had a pleasure of working with some of the most intelligent and dedicated mental health staff to include nurses, psychiatrists and Social Workers. Everyone in the entire building were very dedicated to the clients. My duties became more complex as I continued to take on more and more responsibility. By the time I left to return to college, I was burned out.
Every week is an adventure but sometimes too much. I handle a payroll consisting of over 300 employees with numerous locations throughout Cleveland, and now Euclid too. I have a great boss that makes the job fun, but knows when work needs to be done. He trusts me with various items, especially in regards to all confidential wage information. I think the hardest part of my job is sometimes getting the managers to follow guidelines like turning timesheets in by 2 pm the Wednesday following payroll. Timesheets sometimes get pushed off to the side while other managers are completing them as soon as possible. I have learned a lot in my career with Mental Health Services. I have recently been brought into back up our MIS Manager. Her job is to run client billing to medicaid, and non-medicaid client billing to the Board. I have enjoyed this challenge, and love learning more every day.
Very rewarding in seeing people achive their goals.....
Mental Health Tech (Former Employee) – Sheboygan, WI – July 26, 2012
Very busy and fast paced.... Monitoring meds checking in on clients.... I learned when mentoring people go at their own pace.... I enjoy working as a team and listening to new ideals learned to look at all aspects not just my own... Learning to sit back and listen and wait for results and rush... Knowing that i have helped someone achive their goals....
