Harbor Point was a great facility to be employed by. I found my passion to work with the youth that have traumatizing backgrounds. I definitely recommend this as an entry level position.

I learned a lot about the treatment of children with mental health issues and the best ways to support them in treatment. Being supportive of children who have been abused is very important.

Mental Health Technician (Current Employee) –  Portsmouth, VANovember 2, 2016
A typical day at work is assisting students in the class room and redirecting behaviors and assisting the teacher. I have learned that sometimes helping other can be hard and enjoyable. Management do not care about their employees. My co-workers sometime are to friendly with the individual and do not provide structure making my job harder because I go by the book. The hardest part of my job is seeing the individuals who do not want the help and do not take treatment seriously. The most enjoyable part about my job is helping individual to make better choices and each a goal.
Pros
Freee Lunch
Cons
Mandation
