Want to help people in crisis?
Are you ready to be a part of a new program that helps the Contra Costa County community receive timely access and support for their behavioral health needs? Join our team!
Contra Costa Health Services – a team of over 4,600 employees who protect the health and safety of all people in the county, especially those at higher risk for health problems – is working to revolutionize behavioral health crisis response with a new innovative program called Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime (A3).
When someone experiences a crisis – a fire, crime or medical emergency – they call 911 with the expectation of getting immediate emergency services. However, when that emergency is a behavioral health crisis, there is currently no timely and clinically appropriate response. A3 addresses this enormous need by making behavioral health part of the emergency response system to provide timely and appropriate behavioral health crisis services to anyone in Contra Costa County anywhere at anytime.
To make our ambitious vision a reality, we are recruiting a team of dedicated Mental Health Clinical Specialists to provide field-based mental health crisis intervention and connect people in crisis and their families to services and peer support. A3 is committed to building a team that reflects the ethnic, linguistic and cultural diversity of our county.
Remote work may be a possibility for some positions. Schedule may include four 10-hour shifts each week, and we offer differential pay for evening hours.
