challanging and stressful work with children and their families
Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Covina, CASeptember 26, 2017
I would have to drive around in traffic, meet with children with behavioral and emotional problems, then complete paperwork that was difficult to keep up with. The completion of the paperwork sometimes seemed to out-weigh the importance of the quality of work with families. Everyone got along but were not close and management was supportive. It was encouraging to see a child improve in negative behaviors.
Pros
I felt I was providing and important service
Cons
With driving a lot, and often in traffic, paperwork, and interacting with families, it was stressful

Individual Offices and Regions vary.
Mental Health Therapist 1 (Former Employee) –  Yucca Valley, CA 92284August 28, 2017
High Desert Region is small, friendly, and mgmt is supportive and helpful, not punitive which differs from larger offices closer to the corporate office. Mgmt was never harsh but gently corrective. Many peer partners and mental health workers running groups with fewer therapists doing individual therapy sessions. Clients are local, indigent, early intervention or prevention only; all others sent to higher level of care elsewhere. For me the hardest part of the job was the no-shows. As a non-profit, many times clients did not value the services and were casual about timeliness and keeping up with the expected attendance at sessions. Working with the wide variety of clients and being with a supportive, intelligent, kindly staff was the best part of the job. I learned a lot about how a non-profit organization works and how well a friendly and supportive team works to support both staff and clients.
Pros
Small office far from corporate
Cons
Low funding.
