Good place to work
Community Mental Health Worker (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON17 December 2018
Good place to work, really care for their staff and mental health/quality of life of their staff. Sometimes will deal with some troubling circumstances or emergencies but will be supported by a team and management if this does occur.

Things are getting bad
Community Mental Health Worker (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON27 September 2018
In the past 5 years since certain management has changed, things have turned for the worst. It is a toxic environment, and management is not to be trusted. Most people are unqualified to be doing their roles. It appears they hire just about anyone. Lots of favouritism occurs.
Referrals are based on nepotism of employees, or to individuals who's families donate money to the organization, it is not based on risk, need, or priority.
Many employees are looking for jobs else where, and there is a quick overturn.

Toxic Work Environment
Community Mental Health Worker (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON12 June 2018
The work is fairly typical of a mental health housing agency. The management are nice people, but rather unprofessional. The employees are very unprofessional, and there is a terrible gossip-culture. Employees are not very friendly, especially to new employees. Management plays favourites and I never felt secure in my job. I wish I could have just completed my work, but it's hard to ignore such a terrible work environment. The pay does not justify the toxic office culture.
Pros
Some employee perks, a lot of flexibility and autonomy
Cons
Terrible/toxic work culture, too much gossip
