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. 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.
