Job description

Are you passionate about helping others?  Do you know someone that is affected by mental health issues?  If so, then we are looking to talk with you! 


West Central has developed a new innovative program that will provide Mobile Crisis Outreach to individuals 24 hours a day/7 days a week!  The primary goal with this program is to assist individuals with a mental illness before they end up in a significant crisis and require hospitalization.

West Central Behavioral Mobile Crisis is looking to hire Mental Health Clinicians who are interested working on this team. 7 am – 3 pm, 3 pm- 11 pm, with a priority to second shift. We are looking for Mental Health Clinicians to help those in need during these times when other service providers are not available.

As a part of this team you will rapidly evaluate complex behavioral health situations; develop, recommend and support clinically appropriate crisis interventions to be implemented with individual clients, their families, and a wide variety of community helpers, including law enforcement and EMS personnel.

To do this, we need passionate and dedicated Master-Level Clinicians. We will consider candidates with Master's Degrees in Progress (Clinicians) if they have relevant experience in mobile crisis/mental health and are in school for the appropriate degree. For the therapists who already have a full time job, but believe in our mission, there are also first, second and third shifts available.
