The Clinical Supervisor will play a crucial role in supervising behavioral health clinicians performing assessment and crisis response for those in psychiatric and substance-induced distress outdoors in San Francisco. The SCRT aims to avoid harm to the individual in crisis by intervening in person-centered and trauma-informed ways and attend to the immediate needs of the person in crisis. This will be done by treating each person in crisis with the utmost dignity and respect, as well as an active participant in their own de-escalation process and reestablishment of personal safety. Clinical Supervisors work as a team to ensure at least one is available remotely by phone throughout all shifts worked by the Behavioral Health Clinicians. Clinical Supervisors also participate in the field to shadow and observe clinical work, as well as work in place of clinicians who are on vacation or unable to report for their shift.
