Silver Hill Hospital

  • 37 people are interested

We seek mature, personable, and discreet individuals to greet and direct visitors to the inpatient adolescent unit during regularly scheduled family programs and visiting hours on the weekends (1:00-3:00 PM on Saturday and 1:30-3:30 on Sunday).

This volunteer position will afford you with an opportunity to interact with patients, family members and staff and gain exposure to the operations of a psychiatric hospital and various staff roles and functions. You will also learn about the types of services offered to individuals with psychiatric or addiction disorders. Volunteers may select available weekend dates that work with their availability.

An orientation to the hospital is required. We ask you to provide one written reference and authorize the hospital to conduct a criminal background check. All volunteers must also show proof of a negative PPD (tuberculosis screening). Please contact Lisa Ruggiero, director of volunteers at 203-801-2320 or lruggiero@silverhillhospital.org to set up an initial meeting.

Mission Statement

The mission of Silver Hill Hospital is to provide our patients with the best available treatment of mental illness and addiction; and to offer continuing support, counseling and education to our patients and their families in every phase of illness and recovery. For over seventy years, Silver Hill Hospital has been at the forefront of psychiatry and leads the way in providing the best treatment for psychiatric illnesses and addiction. Our track record of success is based on a carefully executed team effort, one that uses an array of powerful tools, talent and knowledge to help people turn their lives around.

Description

Silver Hill Hospital is a not-for-profit, nationally recognized, independent psychiatric hospital offering diagnosis and treatment for the full range of psychiatric illnesses and substance use disorders.

Because Silver Hill is a hospital that provides both inpatient and residential treatment, patients have the advantage of our unusually broad and comprehensive range of programs. Patients who are acutely ill and who require intensive psychiatric and nursing supervision are treated in one of our adult or adolescent inpatient units. Treatments there tend to be medically oriented and the stay is typically short.

Patients who are ready for more psychological and behavioral interventions can be treated in our residential Transitional Living Programs, where there is more openness and the treatment course is longer.

All volunteers are requested to grant permission for a background check and are required to participate in an initial orientation and training process (group or one-on-one with volunteer manager)
