Description
Seneca’s Ventura County Crisis Program provides crisis stabilization and short-term residential treatment for youth in serious distress. This groundbreaking program provides a “no eject, no reject” policy to meet the needs of the youth in our care. Our collaborative decision-making process enables each individual youth and family to safely communicate their needs, in order to leverage their strengths, talents, and cultural and ecological resources. Services include linkage to long-term, sustainable supports based on each client’s unique strengths and needs.

The Crisis Clinician provides direct services to clients in crisis in conjunction with Psychiatric Health Facility triage staff at a Crisis Stabilization Unit. The Crisis Clinician position works as a part of a multidisciplinary team comprised of nurses, psychiatrists and counselors.

Seneca supports clinicians towards licensure and beyond. Expenses such as outside trainings or licensure fees can be mitigated though your clinical training stipend, and you will receive a $4000 salary increase upon getting licensed. Looking to expand your clinical skills even more? Training and growth opportunities in the agency are abundant, and Seneca is committed to helping you advance in your career!   

Seneca Family of Agencies is committed to providing traditionally marginalized communities a network of outstanding mental health, community based, and educational services. Celebrating diversity and creating a culture of inclusion increases creativity, innovation, problem solving, and teamwork. Seneca’s agency-wide DEI Advisory Board, Employee Resource Groups, and Language Practice Groups help our employees provide culturally and linguistically relevant services to the families we serve.
