Posted 3 weeks ago

We are currently seeking Practitioners to join our Starting Point Mobile Psychiatric Rehabilitation programs! There are full-time openings in both our Montgomery County and Bucks County chapters.

At Starting Point:

We believe that recovery happens in community.

We believe that we have something to learn from everyone we serve.

We believe in meeting people where they are instead of where we want them to be.

The Starting Point program offers support to individuals in the unique model of Psychiatric Rehabilitation, serving those with a mental health diagnosis, to reach their own, personally identified goals.

Our practitioners meet with individuals in their own spaces to help them begin their journey toward growth and fulfillment.

Practitioners meet weekly with those served to help identify a person's strengths, needs, and barriers in accomplishing the identified goal. Goals can include anything from finding and maintaining employment, getting involved in community activities, establishing healthy habits, finding housing, and so much more. Once established, Practitioner's support individuals to gain skills and resources to reach this goal.

Through on the job training and consistent support from peers and supervisors, anyone who joins the team is offered the opportunity to grow professionally and have genuine impact on people's lives.
