Description:
Join BHN as we help children and youth gain life skills through our local community!

Become a part of our team of competent and compassionate professionals as an independently licensed Team Leader in our dynamic and expanding Therapeutic Mentoring program at Behavioral Health Network! In this position, Team Leaders provide ongoing clinical and administrative supervision to Therapeutic Mentoring staff, including monitoring compliance with all BHN policies and procedures. Working collaboratively with the Program Director, they develop, implement and modify program-specific policies and procedures and plan and conduct team meetings. Team Leaders also develop and deliver trainings to all Therapeutic Mentoring staff and ensure the high quality work done by members of the team.

In this position, you will acquire skills in motivating and supporting staff, both in accomplishing their work and in meeting their own individual potential. In addition, you will be a part of a network of supervising professionals, all of whom are working towards the common goal of providing high-quality community-based service to youth and their families.

In the Therapeutic Mentoring program at BHN, caring mentors dedicate their time on-on-one with a child or youth to work on building a variety of life skills in the community. Therapeutic Mentoring is a time-limited and targeted service intended to support other services already in place for the children served.

Behavioral Health Network is a growing non-profit community behavioral health agency that has been providing services to children, adults, families and communities in Western Massachusetts since 1938. BHN provides comprehensive, outcome-driven behavioral health care.
