Riverbend Community Mental Health, Inc., one of the largest providers of community-based behavioral health services in New Hampshire, is seeking a per-diem clinician to join our Mobile Crisis Team, assisting individuals and families experiencing a psychiatric crisis.
The Mobile Crisis Team is a new Riverbend initiative, and is the first of its kind in New Hampshire. It was created to avoid hospital emergency room visits if possible, and reduce the overall number of hospital admissions related to psychiatric crisis.
As a Mobile Crisis Clinician, you’ll be working with a team of professionals — including first responders, healthcare providers, and community-based agencies — to stabilize a psychiatric crisis situation, avoid hospitalization and/or incarceration, and initiate immediate community-based treatment. This is a fast paced, dynamic position that requires flexibility, multi-tasking, and strong crisis management skills. This is a great opportunity to bring your clinical skills where they are needed the most, and make a real difference in the community.
- Provide telephone triage for psychiatric crisis calls
- Provide assessments and interventions in homes and other community locations
- Short-term therapy, case management, and referral to appropriate services
- Master’s degree in Social Work, Psychology, or related discipline
- A minimum of two years experience in a mental health treatment environment
- Availability for night, weekend, and non-traditional hours required
- Experience working with adults and/or a forensic population preferred
