Behavioral Health Assistant Resume Samples

Working in a clinical setting, a Behavioral Health Assistant uses counseling principles and nursing training to help health practitioners and psychiatrists deal with mental or emotional disorders. A well-drafted Behavioral Health Assistant Resume indicates the following core duties and responsibilities – recording patient’s physical conditions, taking vital signs, and observing behavior; providing patients with assistance with daily tasks like bathing, and eating; helping the medical staff in organizing social and recreational activities, encouraging patient participation, cleaning and disinfecting patient rooms, helping patients get used to routines, and completing administrative tasks as needed.

Strong knowledge of human behavior, learning and motivation, and the ability to assess and treat people having psychological disorders are necessary to monitor patients; keen attention to watch for harmful or unusual behavior is as well needed. Strong observation skills and a good understanding of therapy and counseling principles are also crucial. While a high school diploma or GED may suffice, possessing a relevant diploma will impress the employer.
