Field-Based Mental Health Counselor (Walla Walla)

Posted June 2, 2021

We have seen many successes with our law enforcement-assisted diversion (LEAD) program that launched in January 2021. Along with our partner in the effort, Comprehensive Healthcare, we now carry a caseload of 87 individuals across four case managers. BMHTH’s low-barrier buprenorphine program (a.k.a. “Meds First”) has also done very well, inducting nearly 300 people onto Suboxone since June 2019. This mental health position will be partly co-located at our SSP in Walla Walla, and partly meeting clients in the field. Energetic, team players with a passion for trauma-informed therapies will love this position. More details follow.

Duties:

  • Meet clients where they are (e.g., bus transfer station, shelter program, SSP site)
  • Assess clients through detailed conversations, interviews, and observations to determine the appropriate testing or examination
  • Diagnose the client’s mental and emotional disorders
  • Create effective treatment plans that include counseling, medication, or other services
  • Work with your client; develop goals that align with case managers’ goals for that client
  • Regularly discuss the treatment plan with your clients to identify changing needs
  • Educate appropriate coping mechanisms to help clients through tough situations or ongoing trauma
  • Record the client’s progress and change treatment plans when needed
  • Regularly confer with in-house and partner clinical and case management staff to ensure all services are brought to bear for the clients’ interests

Expectations:

  • Timely reporting to work
  • Clear written and oral communication with supervisor, coworkers, clients, and contract holders
  • On-time, accurate, and complete paperwork support for clients, BMH2H, and its contract holders
  • “No surprises” communication
  • Trauma-informed practices and communication with coworkers and clients
  • Active engagement at work to enhance program delivery and provide quality services

Qualifications:

  • Degree in psychology, social work, or psychiatry
  • Able to make professional evaluations, decisions, and recommendation for treatment planning and implementation
  • Active practitioner license, active driver’s license 
  • 3 years of experience in counseling or mental health services 
  • Working knowledge of legal guidelines stipulating psychiatric admission requirements
  • Able to work independently and as a positive member of a team 
  • Able to establish and maintain effective working relationships with mentally or emotionally disabled persons and their families 
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Comfortable treating both routine and serious mental health illness 
  • Strong computer literacy skills
