I am a 34 yr old ex-mental health worker. Just recently left my last job at a secure adult crisis facility due to burnout after quite a while. Have 6 yrs previous experience in the juvenile field (detention, drug rehab and sex offenders). The rest of my experience is in private security/law enforcement.

My dad is bi-polar and, best friend is dx'd schizo-affective. I've had problems with extreme depression so, I know what it's like down in the deep, dark, black hole.

Any questions...just hit me up.

Good to meet you and :welcome:
My husband's an ex cpn. He left because of the way the system is. He's now working as a programmer but hoping to work part-time as a counceller at some point.
Take care

Thanks.

Well, it depends on what you mean by crisis intervention. The screwy thing with this field is that for every facility I've worked, there's also a different definition for that.
