DSP Week Spotlight: Hassan M. in PA

Hassan is a Recovery Support Professional with Salisbury Behavioral Health, a Division of RHA Health Services in Pennsylvania. This is his first direct support role, and October will mark his first work anniversary with the company.

What do you love most about being a DSP?

“I find it very rewarding, and it’s definitely not boring.”

What do you think the most important part of your job is?

“I think the most important part of my job is focus. I have to be aware of what I’m doing. It’s important to be cautious.”

What would you say to someone who is considering becoming a DSP at RHA?

“It is a very rewarding position. It’s a very fun job, or at least I find it to be one. I work with a really great team and everybody I work with is genuinely a team player.”

Hassan was nominated by Ashley Blum, Personal Care Home Administrator in PA, who said:

“Without Hassan’s help since October, I don’t know where we’d be. Hassan constantly steps up and helps when no one else wants to and does it with a smile. He still comments how happy he is to be here and volunteered to work overnight full time for the 12 weeks our primary overnight staff is out on leave. He is amazing and I am grateful every day for him!”
