Temporary Triage Clinician

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 1-2 clinicians to provide coverage during the following hours:
  • Mondays 10am-5pm
  • Tuesdays 10am-8pm
  • Wednesdays 10am-5pm
  • Thursdays 8am-4pm
  • Fridays 8am-4pm

This is a temporary non-benefits eligible position.


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.
