ABOUT OUR ADULT SERVICES DIVISION
For adults with serious mental illness and substance use disorders, recovery and success in life depends on good mental and physical health, as well as having satisfying relationships, safe housing, purpose in life, a sense of belonging, and hope for the future. We help people define their personal goals for recovery and manage their symptoms so they can achieve those goals. With our integrated health services, care and support, they discover strengths they didn’t know they had and are able to build futures filled with hope, meaning, and wellness.
You will work in a health care home setting to help our members manage and improve their physical health. You will collaborate with psychiatrists, counselors, substance abuse specialists and others who will treat behavioral health and substance abuse conditions while you treat physical health conditions, all with the full support and assistance of a professional clinical team.
This is a unique opportunity to increase your skill set. You’ll learn about working with the seriously mentally ill and their challenges, as well as their unique gifts. You’ll also learn about collaborating in an integrated care setting, where you’ll make new connections and discover new opportunities.
