This role is located in Brooklyn New York and surrounding areas.
In this role, you will be a part of our client's cohort of staff providing direct services to members, who face economic and social challenges in addition to having mental and physical health needs, through our innovative care model. You will be associated with our first clinical “hub,” a primary care practice that in many respects will look more like a community center than a doctor’s office. Your work will frequently be field-based, extending out in the surrounding neighborhood and community. It is integral to our care model that we meet people where they are, both physically and emotionally. As a Behavioral Health Specialist, you will work with a panel of members to improve their health holistically. You will provide a necessary bridge to ongoing behavioral health services in the community, will support existing services (i.e. outpatient mental health or substance use treatment), and will be an accessible resource to both members and their care teams from a behavioral health perspective.
