Mental Health/Disability Specialist (Former Employee) – Sunnyside, WA – April 2, 2013
My day consisted of multiple tasks and responsibilities. I coordinated services through the main office with the assistance of 3 specialist on site with me.
Daily paperwork, filing, in or out with correspendence, phone call assistance, walk-in services, atttended meeting, and heavy usage of computer. Prepared reports, reviewed all incoming documentation, worked on projects individually or with a team, provided training's to staff & parents, and frequently met with community partners.
I enjoyed working with children, staff, parents, & community partners. Knowing I was able to work with a variety of people and children to make a difference in lives was most heart warming to me. I am very fortunate that I learned all my skills and knowledge through my years with WSMC. The agency encouraged self improvement as well as education enhancement. I didn't find the job difficult but at times it was very busy and short handed of staff.
Most enjoyable was knowing I believe I did a great job!
multiple. flexibility, valued family, offered self improvement plans
i would have to say some days were very long (12 hrs) with no breaks...
