POSITION SUMMARY: The goal of the Behavioral Health (BH) Clinical Navigator for the Outpatient Behavioral Health Clinic (OPBHC) is to provide supportive therapeutic services for BH clients referred from CSV Emergency Psychiatric Services (EPS), the Christus network of care, and the community at large. To do this, BH Clinical Navigators will create a referral model to manage the flow of referrals to the OPBHC. Additionally, program development will be undertaken by the BH Clinical Navigators, in conjunction with the Clinical Supervisor, to develop supportive therapeutic programming at the OPBHC that addresses both BH and substance abuse needs of clients. Each BH referral will be assessed for indicated therapeutic interventions at the clinic with follow up navigation to appropriate completion of patient care services within the community. OPBHC BH navigators will provide clinical case management, weekly group therapy, individual therapy, link patients with resources and services in the wider community, or refer to existing service providers to limit duplicating services. BH Clinical Navigators will provide clinical case management as needed, and will train and supervise Masters Level Counseling or Social Work interns at the OPBHC and the EPS Assessment Room. Intensive care management will improve outcomes as well as decrease recidivism to the CSV Emergency Department.
