Hear From Our Staff

  • My team genuinely cares about our clients and providing the best care for them. Our manager emphasizes a positive work/life balance. And our work is fun!
  • I am challenged everyday. I see clients reduce symptoms and experience improved quality of life, self esteem and self sufficiency on a daily basis.
  • I sincerely enjoy helping others. Especially those that feel forgotten about, unseen or even considered “the least of these.” Jefferson Center for Mental Health truly cares about their employees as well as their patients. I love the flexibility my part time job allows within JCMH and how I am able to care for those on my caseload as well as care for my family of three. My managers have been incredibly supportive and encouraging during this challenging time that my family has had to endure and I continue to be just as loyal.
