Job Description Crisis Mental Health Therapist-Youth and FamiliesAre you tired of your typical 9-5 workday? Do you watch the clock? Do you crave a more flexible work-day? Make an exciting change! The Children's Mobile Crisis Team with CCS's Family Behavioral Health System provides a creative and innovative mobile crisis response to children and youth who are in the midst of a mental health crisis. The crisis clinician may meet with the child and family in a hospital emergency room, in community settings or in the home. A mobile crisis clinician has a flexible work schedule to ensure the crisis team's ability to respond to community crisis needs. Often both the child and parent are in distress, and need a clinician who can calmly listen with empathy, while clinically assessing the situation. When responding to a child in an emergency department the crisis clinician works closely with family members and hospital emergency department staff so that the family experiences consistent and integrated care. Once all family members are ready to move forward, the clinician, youth and parent(s) then work together to develop a plan for safety and stabilization that will allow the child to safely remain in the most normative environment possible (preferably the child's own home). Clinicians work flexible schedules in the home and community setting of the youth and families. This unique way of working allows clinicians the opportunity to offer a high level of collaboration, coordination and intensive behavior health services while allowing room for creativity and needs driven work. Emphasis is on achieving incredible outcomes with children, youth and families by actively partnering with them along with their natural and community services and supports to achieve long term safety and stability in our neighborhoods and communities.

Company DescriptionThe Family Behavioral Health system provides an integrated and flexible array of strengths-based services and supports centered around one predominant belief: Children need their families and families need their children. Whenever possible, children should grow up within their own families or extended families, and in their own communities. If separation from a parent or parents is unavoidable, we continue to work toward preserving the family relationship, and whenever possible, continue to focus efforts on reunification. In an intervention, which is truly family-driven and strengths-based, the framework is fairly simple. Initially, we find out what families need in order to stabilize and remain together. Subsequently, we work together with the child and family members, using a team-based approach to meet those needs, and we never give up.Family Behavioral Health therapists are well known for innovative therapeutic techniques and non-traditional interventions. Youth and families referred to us have generally experienced a number of traditional services without success. Our families tend to be those for whom nothing else has worked, and all other viable treatment alternatives have been exhausted. Many have all but given up on professional services, and our first task may be to help them see hope for change and growth. Rather than following a strict and prescriptive “model,” we offer individualized and tailored family-centered services, using a strengths-based and team-based collaborative approach. Natural supports are an integral component of every intervention
