Crisis Response Clinician
Now offering a $2000 sign-on bonus!
Crisis Clinicians provide in-person and phone crisis counseling and stabilization for youth, and assess the need for hospitalization. Clinicians work with youth and caregivers to develop a safety plan to limit current and future crises, and collaborate with any existing treatment team members. Clinicians also link the youth to further mental health services if needed.
Seneca supports clinicians towards licensure and beyond. We provide individual and group supervision, regular clinical case conferences, and licensure and renewal courses led by field experts. Expenses such as outside trainings or licensure fees can be mitigated though your clinical training stipend, and you will receive a $4000 salary increase upon getting licensed. Looking to expand your clinical skills even more? Seneca’s Professional Development Scholarship awards employees with tuition reimbursement of up to $2500 each year for certifications in areas such as CBT, DBT, EMDR, or Spanish for mental health practitioners. Training and promotional opportunities in the agency are abundant, and Seneca is committed to helping you advance in your career!
