What is a Community Mental Health Psychologist?

Psychologists are responsible for developing behavioral treatment plans for individuals, as well as monitoring the implementation of these plans. To come up with a plan they identify the strengths and areas of weakness for an individual and look at how to increase and improve upon those areas.

They may perform initial assessments and/or psychological evaluations to determine eligibility for initial or ongoing services at NeMCMH, as well as for guardianship. There are times when testimony to the probate court may be required, and participation in the after-hours emergency on call rotation and the completion of prescreens for inpatient hospitalization and/or emergency crisis services is necessary. Community Mental Health Psychologists may carry a small caseload of individuals seeking outpatient therapy services as well.
