I can't stand the way they treat the mentally ill. My therapist wasn't great at all she talked more about herself then anything. As for the group on cherry street. yeah it's a really bright idea to bunch a group of bipolar people together

Please read this before you work for, or receive services from, South Bay. Counselors are poorly treated and the turnover rate is almost 100%. Clients have to see one therapist after another because everyone keeps leaving or gets fired. Do you know why counselors spend your sessions doing paperwork? Because they don't get paid outside of the session. That means if you are approved for 12 sessions, you can count on at least 4 being solely about paperwork and most of the other sessions as well. SBMHC keeps pumping out new clinicians as they graduate from nearby schools. Counselors are fee for service, so they don't even make minimum wage for the first several months. No one wants to refer to them because client care is so poor. The disadvantaged have to use them because there are few, if any, viable options for them. Hmmm...someone is getting rich by taking advantage of the disadvanted.

Pros: Caring, well-meaning counselors

Cons: unethical, takes advantage of staff and clients

I've received care for over 20 yrs for depression and went to SBMH because insurance covered it. This has been the *worst* experience I have ever had.

My therapists were fine, but newly out of school and were not therapeutically supervised (met w/ a supervisor 1x a week to discuss productivity, it would seem rather than particular issues of clients). I was told that in order to see a prescriber, I needed to be in therapy a month. After that month, they would not submit a referral until I obtained prior psychiatric records. When I faxed them in, the supervisor didn't tell my therapist to file them in my file, so they got "lost".

After 4 months, I finally got into see a doc, who is there only 1x a month. He had not reviewed my prior records (they weren't in the file) and then insinuated that I had not sent them in. The supervisor did locate my paperwork, and when it was in the file, the doc still didn't look at it.

Meanwhile, my depression worsened while I didn't get the medical support I needed (it is very controllable with BOTH therapy and medication) and I needlessly went through a lot of pain and aggravation.

Whenever I told anyone I had SBMH for a provider, I was reassured they are considered "bottom of the barrel" in terms of service, at least from the Weymouth office.

I would NOT recommend this agency to ANYONE.

Pros: Will do therapy in yr home

Cons: Disorganized, MDs only in office 1x a month, etc. etc.

Therapits are okay. Overworked so sometimes they run late. Compassionate, caring and professional. Pay attention and don't try to control the situation, listen to your therapist and you will be fine. You will be lucky if you get Keri as you therapist.

Once you get your child's name through the in-processing phase, they are the BEST. The counselors we have had experience with have been a perfect match for our children and each time they have worked with both my husband and I to get the best possible care for the kids. They do arts and crafts, play games, and even take the child for a walk around the block to talk to them. I love that they see the environment that your child lives in because they can see home life as it is in your home. You will never be disappointed, we love them! And they take most health insurance too.

Pros: Counselors work around your schedule and love children.
