Pros: i have helped people from all walks of life
Cons: the negative stigma that people attach to mentally disabled individuals
I HAVE ASSISTED ADULT VETERANS THROUGHOUT THEIR DAILY ROUTINES ON THE ACUTE UNIT AND THIS IS EVERYDAY THAT I HAVE WORKED ON THE ACUTE UNIT. I HAVE LEARNED THAT NO AMOUNT OF HELP IS TOO SMALL AND THE MANAGEMENT TEAM SERVES A VITAL SUPPORT ROLE AND MOST OF MY CO-WORKERS ARE THERE TO HELP ALSO. THE HARDEST PART OF ANY MENTAL HEALTH JOB IS PATIENCE AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE, YOU WILL LEARN IT.THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF THE JOB WAS THE SMILE ON A PATIENT,S FACE AT TIME OF DISCHARGE.
