We are looking for motivated and passionate clinical supervisors looking to make an impact in their community to join a new Street Crisis Response Team in San Francisco! The Street Crisis Response Team (SCRT) is an innovative co-responder model responding to triaged 911 calls for non-violent, behavioral health issues in San Francisco, as an alternative to police response. Since November, six teams have launched, responding to calls citywide.
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 in San Francisco.
