Behavioral Health Providers for School-based Health Centers

Cabin Creek Health Systems

Job Description 

CCHS is looking for behavioral health providers (BHPs) to serve children, adolescents, and families in school-based health centers operated by the Cabin Creek Health Systems (CCHS) in Kanawha County, West Virginia. CCHS is a Federally Qualified Health Center with five school-based health centers and is seeking to expand these services to additional elementary, middle and high schools in the county. The county includes Charleston, the state capital, and more rural and small-town areas. CCHS has been providing both school-based primary care with integrated behavioral health for over 15 years.

A school-based BHP is different from a school nurse, school psychologist, or school counselor. These other team members continue to perform their important roles and duties, while a school-based BHP provides separate services including therapy and other interventions to more comprehensively address the mental health needs of students at risk or in distress. School-based BHPs work with school-based health team members and school personnel to provide needed behavioral health services on-site at school as part of an integrated medical team. This approach makes health care referrals more accessible and integrated. That’s what’s rewarding about this job. You can help intervene early. Because of you, students who would never get services will be able to access services at a young age and prevent longer-term or more severe mental health issues.

Job Type: Full-time, only working during the school year is a possibility

Pay: $44,000.00 - $85,000.00 per year, dependent on experience and licensure
