    I worked at Mental Health Cooperative full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Rewarding work with the consumers

    Cons

    Doesn't follow their mission

    Advice to Management

    Please reconsider working here. Case managers were pushed to meet stats at any costs, including fraudulent, without regards to either consumer or employee wellbeing. MHC claims to be in the business of mental health, yet I lost my job due to “unexcused absences” after being involuntarily hospitalized for receiving psych treatment and going through their Crisis system, a process my supervisor helped organize. The whole thing is a joke. MHC fired me for getting mental health treatment yet a supervisor was having sex (at the office) with his case manager and he merely got demoted. Mental health doesn’t discriminate, MHC does.
