Hennepin County's Crisis Services area seeks multiple Senior Mental Health Crisis Therapists. These positions provide the opportunity to make a difference in diverse communities, enhance your clinical skills in a fast-paced, team environment, and be part of a department with the mission to strengthen communities by improving the health of individuals and families.
Cope is a 24/7 mobile crisis program that provides crisis services in Hennepin County. Community members call Cope when they or loved ones are having a difficult time managing a crisis and/or are seeking community supports. As a team member, you will make decisions about an individual's safety in real time while assessing their strengths. Instead of managing a caseload, you will be providing consumers with reassurance in times of crisis, determining their needs and resources, and safety planning. It takes passion and a willingness in order to work with consumers in crisis.
Hennepin County Public Health is committed to advancing health and racial equity. We recognize racism is a public health crisis. We are committed to change, and to co-creating solutions with those impacted to support communities where everyone experiences optimal health and wellness. Diverse voices are critical to this mission. We encourage you to join us in this work!
