If it were me, I'd threaten to leave and see how that goes over. My guess is it's not easy to find people with your skills who want to work in the kind of facility you're in. The fact that the administrators don't support you means they are discounting your worth. Whatever you choose to do, don't forget this: Your mental health is a priority!
