Most rewarding experience or thing you like most about working at Healthy Minds:
I absolutely love working with court-mandated clients who are struggling with substance use and co-occurring mental health issues. It is amazing to watch them grow into the person they always wanted to be but never thought they could be. I have experiences on a weekly basis where I truly feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with this population.
Thank you, Khali, for your amazing work helping our substance use disorder (SUD) and mental health patients find the best and truest versions of themselves. Our team — and the Las Vegas community — is better because of you.
