Use your high motivation to help those in mental health services regain a more fulfilling life!
Join our team of competent and compassionate professionals as a Counselor at the Crisis Stabilization Unit at Behavioral Health Network in Springfield, MA! Counselors use their interviewing, observation, and documentation skills to establish rapport with psychiatric individuals, family members, and service providers. While providing comfort for individuals in the program, they also plan and implement their treatment and ensure that they are provided the necessary services for their needs. Counselors are team-based and recognize when to consult a supervisor, coworker, or another party to contribute to decision-making.
Counselors can learn and grow through their supervision and trainings provided. They develop their recovery skills with the population served in mind and become familiar with the recovery supports and services available in the local community to assist the individuals.
The Crisis Stabilization Unit is a safe, supervised, 15-bed environment combining Department of Mental Health and Crisis beds. Individuals served at CSU are provided a range of services including medical evaluations, groups, and one-on-one meetings, among other services.
