I worked at New York State Office of Mental Health full-time (More than a year)
Good relationships with dedicated staff who were patient and empathic to patients needs
Patients required more support than was available beyond psychotropic medications. The majority found ways to return because of their history of institutionalisation.
Advice to Management
Appreciate the support staff. They are the first line of defense for clinicians and have access to information that patients are reluctant to share with the clinical team.
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at New York State Office of Mental Health (Albany, NY) in August 2014.
Very casual.. interviewed with 3 people - a project manager, the director of the project management office and the pmo assistant. Interview lasted about a half hour and was experience based on education field of study and past internships. No project management internship experience particularly needed.
