Applicants will need to have reliable and insured transportation, good time management, ability to engage youth and family members, and excellent verbal and written communication skills.

BHIS is a voluntary program offered to help families and children manage mental health challenges, healthy choices, and social issues at home and in the community. Services are provided in the home on a weekly basis, sometimes more often if needed. This allows children and families to learn and apply skills in their natural setting. Areas addressed include communication, conflict resolution, social skills, and emotional coping.
Providers work toward improving the entire family’s overall quality of life, focusing on improving communication, how to manage behaviors and building stronger and healthier relationships. To do so, providers work not only with the individual child but the entire family to make change last.
Bachelor's Degree required, preferably in a human services field but we will accept other degrees if the candidate has experience in child mental health. This position entails after-school and evening hours.
