The Position
Mental Health Counselors provide counseling, case management, direct clinical services, community and home based services, and behavioral and human services to mentally ill, developmentally disabled and/or emotionally disturbed clients in an outpatient, residential, community or similar setting.
This position is with the Oasis on Campus Treatment Homes, which is a staff-secured residential treatment program. Clients residing at Oasis have met criteria for Severe Emotional Disturbance and are between the ages of 6 to 18 years old. Oasis clients have experienced multiple failed placements, may have been in a locked residential treatment center (RTC) and are experiencing significant disruptions across multiple life domains. Clients may be in the custody of their parents, kinship care, child welfare, juvenile justice, or youth parole. Potential clients may be returning from an out-of-state RTC or have mental health issues and associated behaviors so significant that local community treatment providers can no longer meet their mental health/behavior needs, but do not necessarily meet criteria for RTC placement. Under direct supervision of the Clinical Program Manager 1, this position provides clinical oversight to five residential treatment homes for the Oasis on Campus Treatment Home program in Las Vegas, NV. This position will participate in the training of Oasis direct service staff on the mental health issues and needs of clients; assist with admissions, review documentation, approve and develop treatment plans, and participate in child and family team meetings; and will facilitate groups with clients, provide parent training, and complete prior authorizations for Medicaid services. ** Please ensure your application reflects your licensure or certification as a Mental Health Counselor, Certified Counselor, Social Worker, Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, or Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor. This should be included in the "license" section of your application. **
