Job Description:


You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a residential Mental Health Worker.

Your compassion is tangible: patients feel it in the hand they hold. Families feel it in your thoughts and prayers. Colleagues feel it in your support.

You know when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly.

You know how to move fast. You know how to stay organized. You know how to have fun.

Youre great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.

Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.


Together well align mission and careers, values and workplace. Well encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.
