As our Parent Support partner you will travel to the homes of parents/guardians with children who have severe and persistent mental health concerns and provide a mentoring-type support. Mentoring will cover topics such as self-care, foster care, CPS, CMH, and any other service provider or issues effecting the family. Since you have a child or dependent of your own that is or has been served by a community mental health agency, you will be able to draw on your own knowledge to encourage other parents as well. You will make phone calls to schedule and confirm appointments, keep case notes and attend staff and client meetings as needed. Your experience with community resources and enthusiasm to help parents like yourself will serve you well in this role.
Hours – Part-Time 20-24 hours per week.
Must have – Valid driver’s license and be a parent or day-to-day caregiver who has or has had a child with emotional, behavioral and/or mental health challenges and/or intellectual/developmental disabilities.
