Posted on: September 21, 2023
We are seeking staff to work with at-risk youth. We take pride
in our structured program that focuses on changing a client's
behaviors, thinking patterns, and values. Our program primarily
focuses on implementing behavioral changes to assist with a
successful reintegration into the home, family, and community.
The Mental Health Technician is responsible for providing direct
supervision and direction to emotionally and behaviorally
challenged children and adolescents in a compassionate and
respectful manner. This includes requiring an unwavering commitment
to the safety of kids and being aware of all ongoing developments
and concerns, on a daily basis, of all children in their care. This
responsibility also includes demonstrating the ability to
distinguish between discipline and punishment as well as seeing
past a child's surface behavior to recognize the children in need
of help. Additionally, there is an innate desire to build trusting
and supportive relationships with all of our children and recognize
this as a prerequisite for implementing individualized treatment
and unit programming.
