Overview

COME AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE

 

CCS’s Family Behavioral Health System is looking for Clinicians who want to join our team of innovators who continually "push the envelope" and challenges traditional thinking in Behavioral Health.

 

We are a values-driven organization, providing family oriented mental health care for children and families in their own home and community.  Our enthusiastic clinical teams provide whatever is needed to help children and youth remain safely in their own home with their family, restoring hope, providing intense mental health services and supports, and helping to strengthen the family unity.

 

Responsibilities

The FSS/BSS Supervisor is responsible for providing clinical supervision, consultation and safety-related decision-making to 10-15 Family Support Specialists (FSS) and Behavioral Support Specialists (BSS) serving families on a 24/7 basis, through intensive in-home behavioral health services.  This position works in tandem with the Portland Clinical Supervisor Team.  The FSS/BSS Supervisor strives for the most culturally appropriate approach for each enrolled child/youth and family, and ensures cultural issues are considered in providing all to a youth/family and in determining appropriate interventions.  This position is key to ensuring FSS/BSS staff provide in home services that reduce behavioral health crises and support safety for all child, youth and families served.  

 

This role also ensures that the services provided are in compliance with Medicaid, and that every service encounter provided by his/her staff is consistent with, and has been ordered (prescribed) on the Clinician’s treatment plan.  In addition, this position reviews each safety plan, and determines the lowest risk strategies that can be employed, which he/she then communicates to the FSS/BSS providing the service often requiring almost daily communication and supervision to ensure support for this clinical work.   This position will track documentation of encounters and reviews for Medicaid compliance in order to prevent Medicaid billing errors which can result in serious organizational consequences. This role will also ensure that hiring is sufficient to meet needs for those we serve, and provides all clinical training to his/her staff.
