Mental Health Therapists are part of the nursing team on the floor. They participate as part of the patient-centered interdisciplinary care team of psychologists, social workers, nurses, and other mental health professionals within the hospital. Within this team, the Mental Health Therapist provides personalized care; they develop a professional intimacy with the patients and are wholly invested in patient well-being. They know the patient’s hobbies, their emotional triggers, and their goals. Other responsibilities may include supportive counseling/educational groups, supervision and modeling appropriate social behaviors. Using this insight, they help patients work on relapse-prevention skills so they can move toward being an active participant in their own recovery.
