I have been working at BEHAVIORAL HEALTH RESPONSE part-time (More than 3 years)
Flexibility in scheduling your own schedule, office is virtually at home until you get a call for an outreach Well recognized in the region as a high quality mental health crisis organization with caring and compassionate staff.
At times situations can be very stressful when dealing with clients in crisis, and work load is unpredictable, therefore income is unpredictable. No raises provided, and no benefits when working part time
I worked at BEHAVIORAL HEALTH RESPONSE full-time (Less than a year)
The managerial staff were extremely cordial. They have an open door policy and hand out candy like crazy. The staff and all co-workers were very supportive to new comers. Questions and the need for support for new comers was welcome and expected and treated with kindness and patience.
They have an incredibly complex, but user friendly computer program to assist you in your phone duties.
The first 3 months of employment as a clinician have a steep learning curve. The clinician needs to be able to talk on the phone and type, and change computer screens during the phone conversation. Many of the calls are crisis oriented, so compassion is a must.
Also everyone starts the job on the late evening shift-5:30p-1:30am. If your circadian rhythm is not in sync with this, or if you are a morning person, this shift will be difficult.
