ABOUT SOUTHWEST NETWORK

Southwest Network provides integrated behavioral and physical health services, caring for both the mind and body for whole health and wellness. We provide treatment programs for seriously mentally ill adults and children and adolescents with complex emotional and behavioral needs. We are committed to their recovery, and we work together to offer hope, support individual goals, encourage self-sufficiency, and change lives. We do whatever is needed for the individuals and families we serve.

We truly understand how important our employees are to those they care for, and how critical they are to our mission. As one of our employees, we will look after as many of your professional and personal needs as we can and make sure your work environment is productive, yet pleasant and informal. We are committed to offering you opportunities for personal and career growth, and we value and reward innovation, collaboration, dedication, and strength.

ABOUT OUR ADULT SERVICES DIVISION

For adults with serious mental illness, recovery and success in life depends on good mental and physical health, as well as having satisfying relationships, safe housing, purpose in life, a sense of belonging, and hope for the future. We help people define their personal goals for recovery and manage their symptoms so they can achieve those goals. With our integrated health services, care and support, they discover strengths they didn’t know they had and are able to build futures filled with hope, meaning, and wellness.

POSITION SUMMARY

As a case manager at one of our adult outpatient clinics, you will work collaboratively with a clinical team to engage, educate, communicate with seriously mentally ill adults, their families, and coordinate their care with behavioral, medical and other providers.. This will include helping them acquire and utilize skills necessary to become self sufficient and to manage—and enjoy—their lives. 

You will participate in the assessment and development of an individualized service plan, then implement identified services, which will help members meet their needs and goals for recovery. You will partner with members to develop a role for themselves outside of their mental illness, while focusing on expected outcomes of increased employment, meaningful community activity, independent living status, and social network.

You will also provide supportive services including, but not limited to assistance in maintaining, monitoring and modifying covered behavioral health services, interacting with the member, their family or other involved parties to maintain or enhance member functionality, and identifying necessary resources to meet members’ needs.

A complete job description is available upon request.

Eligible candidates must possess a master’s or bachelor’s degree with an emphasis in behavioral health. We will consider three or more years of prior experience in behavioral health in lieu of a degree. You must meet the criteria for a behavioral health technician as established by the Bureau of Medical Facilities Licensing.

This position requires a thorough and working knowledge of psychiatric and co-occurring disorders and knowledge of DSM-V codes and descriptions, psychotropic medications and crisis intervention. Knowledge of community based behavioral health services preferred. You must have effective interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills. The ability to follow direction, use of sound judgment, and excellent time management skills are essential. Must be able to maintain good member relationships, identify priorities and stay organized. Preferred typing skills of 25 to 40 WPM.
