Essential Duties and Responsibilities

You will work as part of a clinical team to assess member needs, to participate in the development of individual service plans and to act as a member advocate and liaison with families and community agencies. You will be responsible for providing on-call crisis intervention services, as well as weekend and holiday coverage and support the acquisition of Independent Living Skills through direct skills training or in collaboration with other team members.
Additionally, you will assume primary contact responsibility for a percentage of members to assure accurate and thorough maintenance of their medical record.
