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.
Incumbents perform in a trainee capacity and acquire the knowledge, skills and abilities required in this occupation.
DCFS is recruiting for a Mental Health Counselor 1 under-filling a Mental Health Counselor 2 located in Fernley, NV. These positions are part of the Intensive Family Services (IFS) Program that provide services to families involved with the child welfare system in rural Nevada. Staff provide in-home, family centered, intensive services including counseling, skill-building, supportive services, advocacy, mental health assessments for children and their parents (if appropriately licensed) and clinical case management to complex, high risk families. Mental Health Counselors with IFS provide diagnosis (if appropriately licensed) to children in custody for access to services; higher level of care; crisis intervention; placement disruption services; and case consultation services for other DCFS program staff. IFS does not replicate existing services and is not considered a mental health program, but rather a clinical child welfare program designed to intervene quickly with families where safety threats have been identified and removal of children is imminent without effective preventative services. IFS prioritize efforts to enhance deficient caregiver protective capacities to mitigate safety factors. Incumbents possess a degree of knowledge and proficiency sufficient to perform work independently with little or no additional training. These are full time positions with an anticipated flexible work schedule Mon-Fri with Sat/Sun off, that includes a variable work agreement with overtime after 40 hours per week. Experience providing mental health counseling in a child welfare setting is required. Travel up to 25% of the time may be required.

To Qualify:
In order to be qualified, you must meet the following requirements:
Education and Experience (Minimum Qualifications)
