Job Description:

Are you looking to join a dynamic team focused on providing high quality health care to communities across Brooklyn & Queens? If so, you've come to the right place. For over 117 years, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens has been providing quality social services to the neighborhoods of Brooklyn and Queens, and currently offers 160-plus programs and services for children, youth, adults, seniors, and those struggling with mental illness. Catholic Charities provides comprehensive care coordination and case management services to individuals living with serious mental illness, complex medical needs and substance use needs. Our Kingsborough Transition Team (Pathway Home) works with clients transitioning to the community from a higher level of care. This multi-disciplinary team addresses the preparatory needs of clients in the early stages of recovery, discharge planning, development of daily living skills, and coping mechanisms through team and individual work in the community. The team will follow individuals into the community using the Pathway Home model of care to ensure that they become both linked and engaged with identified community providers. The team delivers comprehensive, community-based services for adults living with serious mental illness, and ensures clients have access to uninterrupted and coordinated behavioral and physical health services while addressing the social determinants of health that impact daily living. The Clinician will address a host of issues that impact clients directly such as housing, access to nutritious food, economic security/benefits, medication adherence, linkage with outpatient treatment providers or other community resources and social supports. This position is part of an embedded team at Kingsborough State Psychiatric Center.

The Clinician has overall day-to-day responsibility and accountability for coordinating all aspects of care for clients with complex medical and/or psychiatric co-morbid conditions and for facilitating their access to the full range of medical, behavioral health, substance use, social and psychosocial services in the community, in an efficient and effective manner. The Clinician is part of the team reviewing referral packages and conducts comprehensive psychosocial assessments/assists with intakes as needed to determine client appropriateness for enrollment, and medical, psychiatric, housing and other social needs in the community.

Duties of the Clinician focus on providing intensive emotional and practical support to clients as they transition back into their communities and into a supportive housing living environment. This includes provision of short-term counseling (coping skills, trauma informed, decision making) and Risk Assessment/Safety Planning, counseling clients in individual and group sessions to assist them in dealing with substance abuse, mental and physical illness, family issues, housing problems and unemployment and other social determinants of health. The Clinician provides ongoing family conferences and psychoeducation to families and others within the support network while also fostering relationships with community providers to ensure clients are connected with appropriate services as they transition back into the community and to share or collect collateral information. The Clinician engages clients while inpatient and post discharge, conducts home and community visits to clients, emphasizing prevention and preparing for independent community living and the promotion of optimum mental and emotional health. This may require helping clients to deal with issues associated with but not limited to family and social relationships; stress and symptom management; activities of daily living; medication management; and housing readiness. The Clinician is responsible for assessing client need on a regular basis and developing a comprehensive, individualized person-centered care plan that is recovery-oriented and integrates the continuum of medical, behavioral health, rehabilitative, and social service needs. The Clinician is responsible for high quality care coordination services that will assist individuals in their recovery journey, keep clients well in their home and community and increase positive health outcomes. The Clinician is also responsible for crisis intervention as needed.

The Clinician is required to utilize technology and various web-based platforms for documenting progress notes and daily work activities. Ability to use equipment such as iPhones, tablets, Surface Pros and easily navigate various technology platforms and reporting systems is a requirement.
