Are you bilingual in Spanish and English, have your LSW or LPC, and interested in working in Primary Care? Become an integral part of Behavioral Health with GCB!
We have a Part Time position available working in the Cincinnati Health Department! The hours will be 24 hours/week and can be flexible!
This is a rare opportunity to provide behavioral health care to Spanish-speaking community. Much of our local Latino community does not have the English fluency or financial resources to access behavioral health care. By joining our team you will be caring for both Spanish- and English-speaking patients in local health care centers.
The majority of people with a behavioral health condition first seek help from their primary care provider and very few follow through to obtain care from an outside behavioral health program. As a Behavioral Health Consultant you will have an opportunity to be on the leading edge of the new field of Primary Care Behavioral Health. You will reach a population that otherwise would not seek outside behavioral health care because of the stigma associated with mental health treatment. By working hand in hand with their primary care providers you will deliver much needed care to this underserved group. You will help patients to improve their mental and physical health through a combination of brief and ongoing treatment.
