When I first started (2 years ago) I loved this job. I felt supported, safe, and loved seeing the transformation of the residents. One by one, that group of management got laid off or fired because residents would make up allegations. I am not AT ALL saying that allegations should not be taken seriously, however, when the allegation is completely out of that employees character and they have not had any other allegations, I have an issue. I know the Milieu Managers were so stressed that their blood pressure would skyrocket. The job is incredibly stressful as a mental health tech. Most employees don't last more than 6 months. Very very underpaid for the work we do. The new management team do not support the MHTs. It has completely gone downhill, which is really sad. They will also hire anyone, because they are so desperate to fill positions. I really really wish they would figure out how to get it together, because we need mental health hospitals. It isn't fair for to the residents who need help.
Also, don't expect breaks. You might get your 30 min break.
understaffed, limited breaks, not supportive managers
