Willow Springs Center has an opening for Resident Mentors for
Day Shift B, Tuesday thru Saturday, 6:30am to 3pm.
Resident Mentors work as members of the treatment team alongside
other mental health professionals, therapists and nurses. Mentors
work in the residential treatment setting. They assist in observing
patient behavior on an ongoing basis to monitor the effectiveness
of treatment plans and document progress in patient charts. Mentors
assist with programs, activities of daily living, recreational
opportunities and meals.
Resident Mentors act as a role model for our patients (aged 5-17
years) by demonstrating appropriate behavior and applying active
listening techniques. They also establish therapeutic interpersonal
relationships with assigned patients through one-on-one
interactions in order to accomplish treatment plan goals.
Our Resident Mentors protect patients' rights by demonstrating
appropriate professional and personal behavior, reporting observed
violations of patients' rights and suspected or known instances of
client abuse or neglect. Mentors are called to respond to safety
and security issues according to established procedures and will
transport patients to and from scheduled appointments and outings
using company vehicles.
As a Resident Mentor working in the Inpatient program, employees
could be exposed to verbal and physical assault by patients.
