I've experienced a lot of camaraderie at Progress- its genuinely fun to work there. But the pace can be brutal. A typical day is full of reassuring, deescalating , and motivating low or no income clients in mental health crises (frequently with a co-occurring substance abuse
disorder), documentation, case management, HIPAA compliance, facilitating therapeutic groups, and coordinating discharge planning.
We are tasked with receiving up to two people a day, and this can be challenging. I feel that we are given few resources with which to do our job. That being said, it is enormously rewarding to know that we are part of helping people return to more stability and functionality.
