Decent Job
Great way to get first hand mental health experience. Pay is not great especially if you have a degree. If your an MHA your probably underappreciated/disposable. Scheduling sucks cause you could get cancelled often if census is low meaning you have to use your PTO if you need to keep a stable check. Love the job overall just wish it paid people what they are worth.

Ok work place. Just a little up tight.
No real fun or way to enjoy your job there. The worst thing there is that the Supervisors dontlook out for their own. You have to watch out for yourself and watch you own back.
Pros
Comfortable evening shift
Cons
Move you around, Supervisors are selfish, average pay.

I honestly loved my work but the management was TERRIBLE. They straight up lie to your face. You don't make much money even if your are certified for a position.
Pros

Cons
unfair, disrespectful, not good management

Bad environment
nurses stayed in the nurses station with the door closed and passed their nursing notes onto the next shift. MHA's weren't supported by floor nurses. Therapists ran group, but if they were afraid of a specific pt. they would kick them out of the group never giving them a chance to participate in treatment.
Pros
job security
Cons
treatment of pt's and staff.

work for experience only!
The staff that works at Rivendell are not in tune with caring for patients. They lack setting a foundation or boundaries thus many patients return. Management is more concerned with the dollar than the care. Gossip is at all time high and management joins in instead of ending it. The hospital would be great if staff were lead by example instead of left to figure things out.
Pros
work with schedules and family emergices
Cons
no foundation, dont follow rules, bad managment

Patients do not matter
The purpose of a facility like this is to provide EBT to our patients as well as life skills to allow them to transition back into the social life of the real world. Unfortunately that is not the case, patients are circulated through the system only to return as to keep funds returning to the institution.
Pros
discounted food
Cons
unappreciative CEO, long hours, lack of equality

A means to an end
The only thing that’s good about this place is the health insurance. Especially for one who has a significant other. If you’re a single parent it’s not worth it because after taxes and paying for your insurance your check will be nothing. The pay starts out at 9.00 but if you have a degree it’s 1.00 extra and if you’re a cna it’s 1.00 and if you work 2nd shift or thirds you get 1.00 extra. So you can make from 9.00 to 13.00 dollars still not enough tho. The turn over rate is a mile a minute always new faces and nobody stays beyond a year unless you get paid 15.00 or higher working as a mha (good luck with that!) all in all I give this place ⭐️⭐️ It’s a good place to work for to get experience in psyche and to look good on your resume other than that it’s just a low paying, low level, dead end job. Hope this review helped
Pros
Insurance/overtime/paid holidays
Cons
Very stressful

Fun place to work
I would monitor patients there and I had a fun time building rapport with them. I did this by playing sports with them and leading group therapy. I learned how to lead group therapy and how to properly monitor patients. The hardest part of the job was getting along with the management on ideas that were ethical. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to make a difference in the teens' lives.
Pros
working with patients
Cons
management inconsistencies

Great Mental Health Experience
This job provides a good opportunity to gain insight of the mental health population. For me, this was a good experience because my ideal goal is to work in a mental health hospital as a social work therapist. This hospital has 6 different units to meet various needs of clients and allows employees the opportunity to work with various populations. There is monthly SCM training which requires physical endurance, and a lot of safety training to abide by during interactions with patients. This can be a difficult job, as not all patients want to be in the hospital, and therefore being aware of one's surroundings is crucial. There is also a lot of paperwork involved. Good benefits overall.

It was great until management change
I had so much fun working for this company. They had good ethics and morals, until their management changed. The new management treated a certain group of people very differently. They didn't care about their patients well-being, only making money. I would never go back there.
