    Pros

    Peer Specialist will function as a role model to peers; exhibiting competency in personal recovery and use of coping skills; serve as a consumer advocate, providing consumer information and peer support for clients in outpatient and inpatient settings. The PS performs a wide range of tasks to assist peers of all ages, from young adult to old age, in regaining independence within the community and mastery over their own recovery process. Recovery resources such as booklets, tapes, pamphlets and other written materials will be utilized by the Peer Specialist in the provision of services.

    Cons

    Had to take a test even though i was a very good peer support specialist and they let me go. They said that I could apply in 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    The manager at where I worked was extremely nice to certain employee but was mean to others.

    I have been working at Mental Health Association of South Central Kansas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of time off and you will learn a lot

    Cons

    Poor pay, tyrant behavior by mid management is encouraged by senior management. tons and tons of repetitive, trivial paperwork and extremely disorganized. Ever changing goals and unrealistic expectations

    Advice to Management

    Start acknowledging staff's issues and complaints instead of throwing them under the bus. When someone comes to you with a problem address it in a professional manner instead of just brining it up at an administrative meeting.

    I worked at Mental Health Association of South Central Kansas full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Focus of the overall company is wonderful.

    Cons

    Seems as if you wear many hats and are expected to do many things that you were not hired to do and/or out of your knowledge to do. Lots of gossip, and back stabbing between employees. They care for the consumers far more then their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Stop the gossip. Help your employees.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Mental Health Association of South Central Kansas part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good management-- bosses aren't unreasonable and don't stand over your shoulders all the time, layoffs are rare, usually plenty of hours to go around, work is not severely stressful or demanding. As long as you do your job, are honest and keep up with your deadlines, you don't need to worry about losing your job due. People don't lose their job due to petty office politics or personal grudges like many other jobs, either. This is social work-- we have bigger problems.

    Cons

    Takes a long time to move up within company, raises are small since it's a non-profit. Supervision is minimal, so have to be proactive if you need help from bosses. Sometimes inter-departmental communication is a little lax.

    Advice to Management

    not applicable.


  7. Good Oppurtunity to do great work, but too much focus on the bottom line.

    Pros

    I was very pleased with being able to make a positive impact in many people's lives, helping individuals with mental illness move into their own homes and learning to be independent.

    Cons

    The focus of management was on the bottom line and there was a lack of creative thinking on how to work with consumers. Instead of listening to the staff working with the consumers they made policy based on their own preconcieved ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your workers in the field to guide change and policy and you will get improved outcomes.


  8. Wonderful leadership under now retired CEO who grew agency from 3 employees to 300 employees
