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.
DCFS is recruiting for a Program Manager/Mental Health Counselor III within Wraparound In Nevada (WIN) Program southern region. Wraparound in Nevada (WIN) is a community-based program that provides care coordination to children/youth with serious emotional disturbances who have complex needs. The screening/assessment process for families includes working directly with a child/youth and their family to determine their needs and the appropriate level of care coordination. WIN provides tiered care coordination that includes both High Fidelity Wraparound (HFW) and FOCUS. HFW is an evidenced based model that uses a team-based process utilizing the strengths of a child/youth and their family as well as their supports to create an individualized plan to meet the family's needs and reach their desired outcomes. HFW is guided by ten principles and operationalized by four key elements. Principles: Family voice & choice, team based, natural supports, collaboration, community based, culturally competent, individualized, strengths based, unconditional care, and outcome based. Four Key Elements: Grounded in a strength's perspective, driven by underlying needs, supported by an effective team process, determined by families. Through partnering with and listening to families, the process brings people together to help the family achieve their vision. FOCUS is an intermediate care coordination model designed to meet the needs of youth with a lesser complexity of needs.
This model is a way to operationalize SOC (System of Care) values including being time limited while ensuring the child/youth and family are treated with unconditional positive regard. The family is given ownership over the process and is seen as the expert and primary decision makers. The grounding force behind the FOCUS model are the following four key components: Individualized, Comprehensive, Accountable, and Family Anchored. Care coordinators are working with families to create positive outcomes including: Building Hope for Families, Using the family's own ideas and monitoring if things are getting better. The WIN Program Manager monitors and ensures effective Process Orientation, Fosters the Organizational Culture, ensures Accountability and reviews and utilizes data analysis to make informed decisions for program sustainability.
