What our medical team loves about working at SB&H
I’ve always had a commitment
to serving underserved populations but have been frustrated with the
lack of competence and functionality at other community clinics. SB&H
has proved to me much different, however, with excellent providers,
therapists, and support staff that care and are good at what they do
which allows me to do our important work effectively and efficiently and
enjoy it. I also think SBH is unique in that there are teaching
opportunities which are hard to find outside academic settings.

I have been working at SB&H
for over a year now and it has been a great experience from the
beginning. While still living in Florida, I received a job offer from
SB&H for a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner position available. The
onboarding, credentialing, and relocation process was handled with such
a professionalism and efficiency that made the transition, not only for
me, but for my family a very smooth one. I love most about SB&H that I’m
recognized and valued as a professional. SB&H is a great place to work
and the employee benefits are an A+!

I chose Southwest Behavioral &
Health Services because the team shares my belief that a
multidisciplinary approach is very important in working with patients
towards their recovery. At SB&H we have an element of teamwork that
helps us to assess and provide therapeutic interventions that are
patient centered. We have everything from peer support, vocational
services, case management, therapy and medication management services.
Working with individuals and families on gaining their life back is at
the center of our work at Southwest Behavioral Health.
