Willow Springs Center has an opening for Resident Mentors for Day Shift. Monday through Friday 7:00am through 3:30pm.

Resident Mentors work as members of the treatment team alongside other mental health professionals, therapists and nurses. Mentors work in the residential treatment setting. They assist in observing patient behavior on an ongoing basis to monitor the effectiveness of treatment plans and document progress in patient charts. Mentors assist with programs, activities of daily living, recreational opportunities and meals.

Resident Mentors act as a role model for our patients (aged 5-17 years) by demonstrating appropriate behavior and applying active listening techniques. They also establish therapeutic interpersonal relationships with assigned patients through one-on-one interactions in order to accomplish treatment plan goals.

Our Resident Mentors protect patients rights by demonstrating appropriate professional and personal behavior, reporting observed violations of patients rights and suspected or known instances of client abuse or neglect. Mentors are called to respond to safety and security issues according to established procedures and will transport patients to and from scheduled appointments and outings using company vehicles. As a Resident Mentor working in the Inpatient program, employees could be exposed to verbal and physical assault by patients.

Located in the heart of the Sierras, Reno, Nevada provides a destination location where employees can live, work and play. The location itself is a benefit; not to mention Nevada has no state income tax.

Working at Willow Springs Center means building a career that is dynamic and satisfying; having the opportunity to work and learn from some of Nevadas leading mental health professionals; and being a part of something meaningful that changes the world, one child at a time.

Work at Willow Springs Center is a life path.

At Willow Springs Center, we seek high performing, compassionate professionals dedicated to impacting the lives of youth ages 5 to 17 years. If you have a desire to make a difference through the work that you do, Willow Springs may be the place for you.
