At New Narrative, we envision a future where everyone seeking mental health care can live the life they choose. From clinical care and peer support programs to housing, we provide resources so people seeking mental health care can develop the tools to thrive, not just survive.
If you believe in a radical rethinking of mental health services, that everyone is the author of their own story, and that services should apply to the whole person, not just the diagnosis – we want you on our team!
New Narrative provides a $3,000 sign-on bonus to new applicants and eligibility for state and federal student debt relief.
The Qualified Mental Health Professional (QMHP) mental health clinician is a member of the Cultivating Community and CHOICE Motel Support Team that provides outreach and support to serve participants who are housed in emergency motel placements across multiple locations. The goal of the Motel Support Team is to provide supplemental support and connection to motel program participants and aid consumers in accessing community based resources.
The clinician will provide services which include: advocacy, counseling, crisis prevention and de-escalation, skills training, community navigation, case management, transportation to appointments or facilitation of transportation (ie. Ride to Care, Trimet LIFT, etc.), collaborative meetings with treatment teams and other external providers to ensure safe housing placement, obtaining food boxes, and referring to community based mental health and substance use disorder providers if needed.
With additional peer and risk case management support, the program aims to minimize participant hospitalizations (emergency department and psychiatric admissions), increase necessary contact between the participant and their respective mental health and substance use service providers, and aid linkage to transitional or permanent housing programs.
