Behavioral Health Specialist - Corrections & Diversion

Company: Comprehensive Healthcare
Location: Yakima
Posted on: January 14, 2020

Job Description:

What are we looking for in a Behavioral Health Specialist?

As part of the Corrections and Diversion teams, this position works with local law enforcement to identify individuals whose mental health or substance use disorders have contributed to their reason for police contact. Instead of having the individual arrested, the Behavioral Health Specialist advocates for the individual to be referred to appropriate mental health or substance use treatment programs or facilities. This position requires coordinating with other Diversion programs (such as pre-trial or mental health court), jail mental health services, intensive community support programs, and other Comprehensive and community services to ensure continuity of treatment. This position is most suited for someone with excellent interpersonal skills who desires to work with those in the legal system in order to help them obtain services that will ultimately reduce future legal contact. This is a full-time, overnight position with a schedule of Monday through Thursdsay, 4:30pm-3am.

Behavioral Health Specialist duties may include:


  • identifying and referring individuals for appropriate treatment
  • coordinating with jail services, crisis services, Comprehensive Healthcare programs, and other community providers to ensure continuity of care
  • advocating for community treatment for incarcerated individuals
  • acting as liaison between corrections, judicial, and treatment services
  • crisis evaluation and intervention services
  • assisting in treatment planning with clients and treatment teams

    Education & Experience: Bachelor's degree in social work, psychology, social services, or related field.

    Professional Credentials: Eligible for Washington State Agency Affiliated Counselor Registration.
