Our Outpatient Mental Health services are uniquely suited to meet the needs of vulnerable and high-risk children, adolescents and families — particularly those involved in the Alameda County foster care system. Our mental health clinicians see clients at our Fruitvale clinic as well as in community settings, meeting families at their greatest point of need, equipping them with the tools and linkages to help overcome what often are multiple traumatic events.
As an Outpatient Clinician you are often the one constant in a sea of chaos for some of the most vulnerable children in the Bay Area. You will work with a skilled team of licensed (and license-eligible) clinicians on evidence based treatment plans, psychosocial assessments, individual and family therapy, parent training and support as well as case management. The impact of our work is evident in the lives we help to change on a daily basis. We offer extensive in-service training and support for our staff clinicians in this challenging and rewarding work.
