Mobile Case Manager (Mental Health)
This is an opportunity to engage in personally meaningful work, while you help Oahu’s people diagnosed with a mental illness to cope better with life.
We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) case management agency, staffed by caring employees, working to help the mentally ill population of Oahu integrate more fully into the community. Our focus is the clinically-based SAMHSA Recovery Model as it relates to mental illness.
Many of the mentally ill people we work with are diagnosed with substance abuse, many are homeless, and many have legal issues and other challenges. We help them re-link with service providers in the community in an attempt to live a more normal life.
You will be developing clinically-based treatment relationships with persons diagnosed with mental illness, and helping them integrate into the community using a structured recovery plan: Obtaining psychiatrist visits, medications, housing, substance abuse treatment, and other services.
On a typical day, you will be driving to the various locations to meet with mental health clients and stakeholders in the community. Transporting clients is sometimes required. You benefit daily from the support of the CER clinical supervisors and the other treatment team members. Clinical training and supervision happen on a weekly basis.
This is a full-time position. You must be available 8am to 4pm Monday-Friday. However, as a field case manager, you will have flexibility in terms of structuring your own workday. No on-call is required.
Must have access to a vehicle and valid driver’s license, clean driving abstract, and valid safety check.
Top candidates will have experience in social work or working with SMI or DD populations, although we can train you regardless of experience.
(Preferred but not required): Bachelor’s degree with related coursework. Experience (employment or volunteer) with any specialized population, such as the mentally ill.
We expect that all our employees perform in a top-notch manner and see all clients face-to-face regularly, and enter Progress Notes online the same day for all client encounters.
We are a small, close-knit agency and you will have abundant support from your supervisors. You will have team meetings 2x to 4x per month, clinical supervision with your licensed supervisor 2x per month, ongoing behavioral health training 4x per month, and Program Manager meetings 1x per week. Licensed staff members are available to consult at any time.
Health insurance: We pay for HMSA or Kaiser medical/dental/vision/prescription health benefits

Monthly cell phone stipend
One-time stipend to purchase a tablet device
