Description
SPOP is a nationally recognized leader in geriatric mental health. SPOP was the first, and remains one of a handful of agencies in the nation that focuses on the comprehensive mental health needs of older adults. SPOP has an outstanding reputation in the field of geriatrics and mental health and has received numerous national, state and local awards recognizing our excellence and provision of innovative programming. We are now seeking a LCSW Intensive Outpatient Clinician to join us and help us achieve the agency’s mission of enhancing the quality of life of older adults and foster their independent living through the delivery of comprehensive mental health and supportive services, advocacy, and education.

This position focuses on providing individual and group psychotherapy to older adults recovering from acute medical or psychiatric conditions and transitioning or returning to outpatient treatment. At present, all treatment will be provided via telehealth, with the phasing in of service provision at our main site on the Upper West Side and via home visits throughout Manhattan. SPOP offers a supportive clinical environment and expert supervision, as well as a competitive salary and benefits package.

SPOP is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer committed to assembling a diverse, broadly trained staff. LGBTQ+ people, people of color, people living with HIV/AIDS, veterans, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
