Great house enviroment. Feels like home rather then a mental health facility.
Facility life skills worker/mental health worker (Employé actuel) – Vernon, BC – 26 avril 2016
A typical day can rage from one on one counselling to administering medications to going on group outings, or working on daily life skills. Each day I learn something new about mental health, administering best social care methods and theories. I enjoy the teamwork environment and the cohesion Canadian Mental Health advocates for.
The most difficult days are when a resident is going through full psychosis, suicidal tenancies and when individuals want to leave the facility permanently without being ready to do so. The most rewarding and enjoyable part of my work and job, is to see people use new positive skills that they have learned from our facility. I find it extremely gratifying to watch residents move from our home and out on there own.
