While I enjoyed many of my co-workers, management was more concerned with making money than helping others.

Pros

Many of those working here are great people, and genuinely want to help the community and those suffering most.

Cons

Upper management are very much only concerned with bringing money into the coffers. I often had to argue about policies to keep people who were suicidal from being allowed to go outside to smoke beside the road even though earlier that day they had tried to commit suicide by throwing themselves in front of a moving car. I have also seen them discharge suicidal clients with no insurance early so they could get a drug abuser with Medicaid onto the crisis unit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A community mental health center is there to help the community, not making those in charge wealthy. It is ludicrous that the CEO makes over $400, 000 a year while case managers and others that are college educated and working the front lines make less than $9.00 an hour.
