An Opportunity to Grow
You won’t find a behavioral health system with so many different opportunities anywhere else in the country. Our principle of employee development says it best: “The professionalism and drive of our people are the most important factors in the quality of the service we provide. We hire talented people, increase their skills through training and experience, and provide opportunities for personal and professional growth within the company.”
“The best thing about working at Lakeside is when a patient comes up and tells you that you helped them. When I do a group that goes really well and the patients really understand the benefits of what the group was about…. Well that is the best feeling in the world!”
-Maria, Recreation Therapy
“I like that every day we walk into work we have the ability and potential to change people’s lives for the better. What makes this even better is that I get to do this in the company of my family and friends otherwise called my co-workers. I’m also thankful to work in a place that continues to challenge me in new and different ways every single day.”
-Jennifer, Needs Assessment and Referral
“I love Lakeside because I have established lasting friendships. My co-workers are very helpful and always willing to lend a hand or words of encouragement. Whether personal or business related, they have always been caring and supportive.”
-Marqueatte, Needs Assessment and Referral
“The patients are here for a limited amount of time and in that short time it is so important that we help them realize that their illness doesn’t define them. I am honored to be working with a team that believes the quality of care the patients receive affects their quality of life after they leave.”
-Ruth, Nursing Services
“What has kept me here for 25 years is that I love working with people and giving it my all. It’s not hard to do this when you get to do what you like every day!”
“I choose to work in the social services department at Lakeside because we truly work as a team to meet the patients’ needs. I find a professional level of camaraderie at Lakeside that I have not experienced any other place I have worked.”
