While working as a Mental Health Technician I was able to provide care to patients with mental illness that required additional assistance and education to allow them to return to the community in a safe and healthy manner. I provided security to ensure that each patient was treated with respect and followed all of the guidelines and policies of the hospital. I provided personal care, monitored vital signs, reported any adverse findings to my immediate supervisors while monitoring all of the patients on my assigned ward. I've had extensive training in defensive tactics, with education to recognize when someone may become a danger to self or others, and reducing events of aggressive behavior utilizing safe de-escalation skills. I have attended ACIT, (Advanced Crisis Intervention Training), as well as, CPI (Crisis Prevention Intervention). The skills I learned have been extraordinarily helpful and I have used them extensively with positive outcomes.
