Employee Spotlight

My introduction to Parkside was as a temporary worker in September 2013. Previously I worked in the education field as an executive administrative assistant for over ten years, so the mental health field was new to me. It was fate that brought me to Parkside and I learned its purpose and mission was a part of my DNA.

As a Nationally Certified Administrative Professional (CAP) my career goals were in agreement with the mission of Parkside in the sense of providing outstanding support service. As an executive administrative assistant using the customer service skills I had gleaned over the years was what was needed to work at the front desk. As I got to know the patients who come on a regular basis, my heart opened up to make sure that their visit to Parkside was a highlight of their day. To listen patiently to their challenges on making their appointment, and making sure that their visit was prompt and efficient was the least that I could do.

My temporary tenure was completed in July 2013, but I knew in my heart that I would return some day because I felt a purpose for me here at Parkside. Surprisingly I got a call in October 2013 to cover a vacation of one of the front desk employees. In January 2014 I was offered and accepted a position and had the opportunity to experience the financial side and the responsibilities at Parkside to do everything needed to run the facility. I now understood the importance of philanthropy as well as the importance for mental health funding.

In February 2014 I moved to medical records and now understand how the “intake” paperwork we give new clients down at the front desk starts the course to being a blueprint to recovery and wholeness for our patients, because accurate records are essential to patient trust and our responsibility is in earning that trust, so I take my job very seriously. Too many parents or guardians of children and adolescents face obstacles in receiving the treatment their child needs. As a Sunday school teacher, it was the children especially that captured my heart. I was aware of the adolescent outpatient services offered, but getting to understand about the inpatient services endeared me to make sure that my role in scheduled appointments, and that my small role in medical records is efficient. “There but by the grace of God go I” was something I silently said to myself as I got to understand the mission of Parkside. Not long ago mental health was treated as an embarrassing consequence and those needing help were locked away and forgotten. Mental health is serious business and Parkside’s inpatient service is second to none as far as I’m concerned.

Access to treatment is a key to improving mental health. There were several occasions when someone off the street came into the outpatient lobby and simply stated they needed help, and without hesitation was taken to Assessment and Referral. When someone asks for help and gets it, or is directed to someplace to get it, I feel we are serving our purpose. For instance, the Food Pantry, the Joy Store and the Bread & Salad distribution on Tuesday’s are most important; to me it’s like a second Sabbath day in the week. I am sincerely in admiration at how Parkside helps individuals (and families) struggling with mental illness, addictions and emotional stress by looking at the whole person to determine the services that they need. In order to create an all-embracing and reactive mental health community we must make it a personal priority to advocate for mental health allocation in whatever capacity we can extend. Parkside is a beacon of light in Tulsa and I am proud, in my small way, to be a part of it. ~~TheRese Anderson-Aduni - H.I.M. Clerk
