The hardest part of the job would be when our room is filled with patients while there's only 2 of us keeping a watch but even so its a good challenge at times The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction i have with the patients.It's a playroom a place for the patients not to worry about tests and not feel like they are locked up in there room

Behavioral Health Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 21, 2015
I took care of patients with mental illnesses inside of an inpatient psychiatry unit. Through teamwork with Social Workers, Doctors, and Nurses we created a therapeutic environment to facilitate safe discharge of patients based on their individual needs. My responsibilities included writing daily reviews of patients behavior and any changes thereof, as well as conducting group therapy sessions. I also was responsible for doing rounds every 15 minutes to ensure the location and safety of our inpatients.I learned much about different mental illnesses I was never aware of before, I learned how to take advice and criticism from management such as my head nurse and unit Chief Doctor. The hardest part of the job was dealing with patients while they had emotional and physical outbursts with other patients as well as myself and my colleagues. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing our hard work pay off and patients activities of daily living return to normal and seeing them safely discharged home or to an assisted living facility and knowing that we helped them achieve this goal.
having two weekends off every month, as well as the fact i knew i was helping people in need, another pro was having comfortable lounges for breaks and employee celebrations
when patients would quickly return after being discharged, despite the hard work our team had done to get them back on track
