Mental Health Worker (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – December 29, 2015
A typical day consisted of receiving report from the previous shift before identifying the types of groups that will be held during that day. The day would be pretty busy especially treating the population. The clients were homeless, mentally ill, and drug addicted. At any moment a small situation could escalate into something major which could involve placing a person in 4 point restraints to prevent harm to oneself or another. I've learned that everyone is unique and they cannot be identified by their mental status. The most enjoyable part of the job was engaging the clients in therapeutic discussions that will help them learn something about themselves. The hardest part of the job was trying to offer a 1:1 therapy session and being pulled away to do an admission just when we were making a breakthrough.
