      I have been working at Sheppard Pratt Health System full-time

      Pros

      This is a great place to work overall, and you get great psychiatric care experience. The MHW role is a good stepping stone if you are looking to advance your career in the field. I love being a direct part of each patient's care and gaining a new experience with each person. I love the unit I work on and the staff I work with. The staff are professional and very knowledgeable about their patients. I hope to have...

      Cons

      The MHW doesn't allow for too much growth, unless you become lead MHW. While it is a great position, the hospital has changed its staffing policies which greatly affect morale in the MHWs.

The pay is low and there is a high mandation rate, but...

      Advice to Management

      The staffing department is notorious for taking advantage of the mental health workers and they aren't the most pleasant people to deal with. My advice to management, improve pay, boost morale, and make room for growth for MHWs to get good workers to stay longer and weed out the people only there for a paycheck. I think if they reward good, hard workers, they won't constantly be short staffed or have to mandate people.

      Sheppard Pratt is a great place to gain experience working with the mental health population, they have a diverse population to work with including at ages. The staff is easy to work with and there is never a dull day.
