Fast paced environment with great job satisfaction
Intake Worker/Mental Health Counsellor (Current Employee) – Weyburn, Saskatchewan – 27 April 2015
Each day at Mental Health Intake requires me to rise to meet new challenges in order to find assistance and treatment for my clients. I've learned that surrounding the client with as many options for resources generally is the best way to assist them. In order to do so, I am always on the look-out for new resources in the community for clients to access. Management provides me with the support needed, but does not micromanage each step of my job. On the contrary, I am free to develop new means to assist clients, such as starting a new "single session clinic" to meet clients sooner as assess their needs. The hardest part of the job is managing muliple contacts with numerous clients, consulting other professionals, and securing additional resources in a timely fashion. Many times, it just seems as though there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done that I need to. However, once those connections are made and my clients are connected with the appropriate program, there is satisfaction in knowing that I met their needs.
Fast-paced, supportive environment
Not enough time to access new resources for clients
