The Position
Psychiatric Caseworkers monitor the treatment and progress of mentally ill or developmentally disabled clients, perform day treatment and psychosocial rehabilitation activities, and coordinate discharge and aftercare services, in an outpatient, inpatient, clinic, residential, treatment center, client's home and other community settings.
Incumbents possess a degree of knowledge and proficiency sufficient to perform work independently with little or no additional training. The Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) is recruiting for Psychiatric Caseworker (PCW) positions within the Wraparound In Nevada (WIN) Program. These positions may be either Wraparound Facilitators or Care Coordinators that provide intensive care coordination within the statewide Children's Behavioral Health system utilizing the High-Fidelity Wraparound and FOCUS models. Wraparound Facilitators/Care Coordinators work with children who have a severe emotional disturbance. Wraparound Facilitators/Care Coordinators work to empower children and families to reach their goals by engaging them in a strength-based model. This is accomplished through a Wraparound Facilitators/Care Coordinators leadership, organization, and ability to help a family most effectively utilize various community providers and family supports. WIN is part of the Nevada System of Care and values a youth-guided and family-driven process. Effective Wraparound Facilitators/Care Coordinators believe that all Nevada children and families deserve to live their best life possible and we accomplish this task through passion, compassion, and never settling for anything less than what is best for children and families. Daily responsibilities include, but are not limited to, facilitating Child and Family Team meetings, empowering families to find natural supports, collaborating with community partners and stakeholders, meeting with children and families in their home/schools, contacting team members to monitor progress, collecting data and documenting the daily progress of the Facilitator.
Positions may be located in Carson City, Reno/Sparks, Fallon, Fernley, Winnemucca, Elko, Ely, Pahrump or Las Vegas depending on the applicants and needs of the hiring agency. This position is full-time with a regular work schedule that includes a variable work agreement with overtime after 40 hours per week. The State of Nevada and DCFS offer an excellent benefits package that includes health, dental and vision insurance, participation in the Public Employees Retirement System (PERS), accrual of 15 days of annual and 15 days of sick leave, 11 paid holidays and no city, county, state or social security tax! The Nevada DIVISION OF CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICES (DCFS), together in partnership with families, communities and other governmental agencies, provides support and services to assist Nevada's children and families in reaching their full human potential. DCFS programs include child protective and welfare service delivery in rural Nevada and oversight of urban county-operated child protective and welfare services, children's mental/behavioral health treatment and residential services (outpatient and inpatient acute) in urban Nevada, and statewide juvenile justice services including state-operated youth training centers and youth parole.
