We are temporarily offering a signing bonus for this position of $3,000.
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 2020, 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. The Clinical Supervisor role will work in a 12-hour shift, three to four days per week. Clinical Supervisors will work as a team to ensure at least one is available over the 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 a clinician who is on vacation or unable to report for their shift.
