Posted July 28, 2018 04:53:20 For most of us, it may seem that our job is to help people.
That’s the impression we get from many of the advertisements we see on the internet and in our daily lives.
But our job as a behavioral health professional is to get our clients the help they need to get better.
The new guidelines for behavioral health professionals will help reduce the number of times our staff are told to stop helping people.
They will help to ensure that we are being appropriately trained to treat people who are experiencing a problem with a mental illness.
And, finally, they will help us to help our clients understand the importance of getting help when they need it most.
If we’re doing our jobs right, we are going to be treated with dignity and respect.
This new guidance is designed to protect our staff from the kind of bullying and retaliation that has plagued many of our practices in the past.
Our job as behavioral health workers is to provide professional, safe and confidential care to people who need it.
We need to be sensitive to our clients’ needs.
We’re not professionals.
We don’t make the decisions.
We do what needs to be done.
And the most important thing we can do for our patients is understand that when we get them help, it’s going to help us and not hurt them.
So it’s important for us to get this right, but we also want to ensure we’re being respectful and safe for our staff.
We want to be honest with our patients.
We’ve got to tell them that this is what we’re about.
If our staff feel like we’re telling them what they want to hear, that’s because we’re not.
If you or someone you know needs help, call 1-800-273-8255 or email us.
Our mission is to reduce the risk of people being hurt, and to protect and enhance the quality of our care for people with mental illness in the U.S. We take care of people with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities.
We provide outpatient, inpatient, and community-based services to help with their needs.
And we provide outpatient and community health services for people in jails and prisons.
But we also provide mental health and addiction services for adults and children in our communities.
These services are critical to ensuring the health of the people who live here and who work in our facilities.
We are dedicated to providing high-quality services that are accessible to all people.
We believe in working together with our colleagues in the private sector to meet the needs of people who have mental illness, so that we can reduce barriers to their mental health care.
In fact, we have worked to ensure our policies are based on our professional standards.
We adhere to a number of national and state standards, including those for occupational safety, health and safety, and workplace health and welfare.
We have robust policies that protect our workers and patients from retaliation, and we have implemented safeguards that ensure our patients’ privacy is protected and our staff has access to all records and records are held to the highest standards.
For example, we require our staff to report all complaints of misconduct to the local law enforcement agency within 10 business days.
We also have policies that ensure that our staff receive training in the use of a patient-focused, individualized mental health professional model.
And finally, we work closely with our clients to ensure their needs are met in every way possible.
And when we work together, we find solutions that are both effective and affordable.
That is why we’re making a number from the new guidelines.
First, we’re updating our policies to reflect the evolving needs of the behavioral health field.
Our staff and clinicians will be trained to identify and treat people with a particular mental illness when their mental illness has a medical, medical-related, or social component.
We will also require our professionals to report to the nearest state or local law enforcement agency every case in which they interact with a person with a serious mental illness that requires treatment.
Second, we will require our clinicians to use the appropriate professional tools, including the NIMH standard for patient safety and the American Psychiatric Association’s standards for care.
And third, we’ll make changes to the way we educate our staff about their responsibilities.
The goal is to ensure mental health professionals are working collaboratively with their patients, so we’re keeping their professional development and training up-to-date.
And by ensuring that our practices are appropriately trained, we can help reduce our staff’s vulnerability to harm and to being punished by their patients and other staff members.
Third, we need to ensure a safe and secure environment for our clinicians.
We already have policies in place to help protect our patients from inappropriate conduct, including workplace bullying, inappropriate treatment, and sexual harassment.
We must continue to improve the way our clinicians interact with patients, and also protect them from the threats they face in our workplace.
