Job Description:

Do you enjoy living in smaller rural communities? Love the coast? Bring your career to a coastal community mental health provider while helping people live their best lives!

Do you enjoy exploring parks, wineries, trails, rafting, and more? Join our team!!

We are hiring IMMEDIATELY for a Mobile Crisis Law Enforcement to join one of our community mental health providers!

Summary:

We are looking for a Full-Time Mobile Crisis Law Enforcement Unit, QMHP. This position is part of our current Mobile Crisis team, which is the front door to our services.

The Mobile Crisis team plays a critical role in evaluating individuals experiencing psychiatric distress. Mobile Crisis clinicians engage, assess, and help to create a plan for individuals of all ages in multiple settings including the local ER, the jail, the Community Mental Health Center, and other locations.

The Law Enforcement Unit position will be embedded as much as possible within law enforcement departments, participating in a range of activities including outreach, crisis calls, and general patrol. Clinicians may at times office within law enforcement departments, attend briefings, training, and other meetings, and may float between municipal departments or the County Sheriff’s office.

Experience:

The position is part of a multi-disciplinary team and works out of multiple locations, including working from home and our Crisis Respite Center. However, clinicians spend a good deal of time out in the community working in person with clients.

Hours and schedule will include weekdays, evenings, and weekends. This is based on a day-time (9am-9pm) two-week, rotating schedule which affords the clinician three days off in a row every other week.

Education:

  • A Master’s degree in Behavioral Sciences from an accredited university is required.
  • Three or more years of outpatient clinical experience working with individuals who struggle with mental health is strongly preferred.
  • Experience working in collaboration with law enforcement or emergency services preferred.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills and the ability to prioritize are essential.
  • Dependability and being a positive member of the team will help ensure job success.
  • Must have a valid Oregon or Washington driver’s license, a Motor Vehicle Record that meets agency insurance requirements, and the ability to pass a state-required background check.
