Temporary Behavioral Health Triage Clinician

About Northeastern:
Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and the recognized leader in experience-driven lifelong learning. Our world-renowned experiential approach empowers our students, faculty, alumni, and partners to create impact far beyond the confines of discipline, degree, and campus.

Our locations—in Boston; Charlotte, North Carolina; London; Portland, Maine; San Francisco; Seattle; Silicon Valley; Toronto; Vancouver; and the Massachusetts communities of Burlington and Nahant—are nodes in our growing global university system. Through this network, we expand opportunities for flexible, student-centered learning and collaborative, solutions-focused research.

Northeastern's comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduate programs— in a variety of on-campus and online formats—lead to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Among these, we offer more than 195 multi-discipline majors and degrees designed to prepare students for purposeful lives and careers.

About the Opportunity:
The Temporary Behavioral Health Triage Clinician's primary responsibility is to provide short-term therapeutic intervention for Northeastern students who seek same day or urgent mental health support at University Health and Counseling Services. These services will include psychological evaluation, crisis intervention and brief psychotherapy intervention. The position may also involve outreach activities to the Northeastern University community and collaboration with various support services within the University. The counselor will be responsible for making appropriate referrals for psychopharmacological evaluation and external ongoing counseling, and for referral to emergency mental health services, when appropriate. Time spent amongst the various clinical service activities may shift in proportion to changes in service demands at any given time of the year. The counselor will often work closely with University academic departments and Student Affairs, and will collaborate with medical clinicians at the UHCS as appropriate, all in the interest of providing the best possible team-oriented health care to Northeastern students.

We are recruiting for 2 clinicians to provide coverage during UHCS's hours of operation:
  • Monday, Wednesday, Friday- 8am-5pm
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays- 8am-8pm

This is a 24 hour per week role.

Must have flexibility to work until 8 pm either Tuesday and/or Thursday evenings.

The start date for this role will be mid-August.

A Master's degree in Social Work or Counseling, with Massachusetts license or eligibility, is required. Strongly preferred 2+ years' experience and competency in urgent and crisis assessment and treatment, short-term psychotherapy, treatment of alcohol/drug abuse, working with adolescents and college-aged clientele, demonstrated success in working effectively in an interdisciplinary team setting, and must work exceptionally well with students identifying as BIPOC, LGBTQ students, international students, and other under-represented students and communities on campus. Must have a sophisticated understanding of how intersectionality, privilege, and socioeconomic status relate to the mental health of a global student community.
