North Olympic Healthcare Network (NOHN) is currently recruiting for multiple behavioral health specialists. This is an exciting opportunity to join a multidisciplinary team of behavioral health professionals, and work at a federally-qualified health center that provides full spectrum primary care, behavioral health, and oral health services to members of our community. The behavioral health specialists offer short-term, integrated care, as well as more specialized mental health care, and supportive services to individuals and families across the lifespan. Team members have access to on-going training and team consultation and will also have the unique opportunity to participate in expert-led training in evidence-based treatment of early childhood behavior problems, as well as to take part in community and parent education and outreach efforts. While the current behavioral health specialists are primarily generalists, there are opportunities for specialized focus areas to develop, such as a primary emphasis on working with youth or persons struggling with addictions. Given the availability of licensed, skilled supervisors on the team, there is also the opportunity to accrue hours toward independent licensure for those practicing at the Associate license level.
