Primary Purpose of Organizational Unit:

We accomplish this by providing leadership and excellence in the interrelated areas of patient care, education, and research. We strive to promote faculty, staff, and learner development in a diverse, respectful environment where our colleagues demonstrate professionalism, enhance learning, and create personal and professional sustainability. We optimize our partnership with the UNC Health System through close collaboration and commitment to service.

OUR VISION
Our vision is to be the nation’s leading public school of medicine. We are ranked 2nd in primary care education among all US schools of medicine and 5th among public peers in NIH research funding. Our Allied Health Department is home to five top-ranked divisions, and we are home to 18 top-ranked clinical and basic science departments in NIH research funding.

OUR MISSION
Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of North Carolinians and others whom we serve. We accomplish this by providing leadership and excellence in the interrelated areas of patient care, education, and research.

Patient Care: We will promote health and provide superb clinical care while maintaining our strong tradition of reaching underserved populations and reducing health disparities across North Carolina and beyond.

Education: We will prepare tomorrow’s health care professionals and biomedical researchers by facilitating learning within innovative curricula and team-oriented interprofessional education. We will cultivate outstanding teaching and research faculty, and we will recruit outstanding students and trainees from highly diverse backgrounds to create a socially responsible, highly skilled workforce.

Research: We will develop and support a rich array of outstanding health sciences research programs, centers, and resources. We will provide infrastructure and opportunities for collaboration among disciplines throughout and beyond our University to support outstanding research. We will foster programs in the areas of basic, translational, mechanistic, and population research.

This position is in the Center for Excellence in Community Mental Health. The UNC Center for Excellence in Community Mental Health provides clinical and rehabilitative services to persons with mental illness. The Center provides psychiatric and psychosocial assessment, medication management, case management, psychotherapy, family services and other community mental health services. The Center is also a clinical training site for trainees from multiple disciplines and collaborates on relevant research projects.

Position Summary:

This position will serve on the UNC-Wake County Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACTT). ACTT consists of professionals from multiple disciplines (psychiatry, nursing, social work, and rehabilitation counseling) who use a team approach to meet the needs of individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, as well as co-morbid developmental disabilities or substance abuse disorders, in community-based settings. ACTT works according to a recovery-based philosophy and provides person-centered services addressing the breadth of an individual’s needs, helping him or her achieve their personal goals. Thus, ACTT is generally the first-responder and single point of responsibility for meeting the client’s needs, which necessitates higher frequency and intensity of services and a low staff-to-client ratio. This position will be responsible for facilitating the person-centered planning process for assigned individuals, as well as carrying out a range of psychosocial rehabilitative interventions and case management tasks. The primary focus of this position will be assessment and intervention with co-occurring substance use disorders for individuals served by the ACT Team. This specialist position provides consultation and leadership to other team members around evidenced based treatment for substance use disorders.

Bachelor’s degree in a Human Services discipline with coursework related to the area of assignment. Some positions may require certification to practice as a certified or licensed Clinical Social Worker as required by the North Carolina Social Work Certification Board.

Valid driver’s license.

Preferred Qualifications, Competencies, and Experience:

Work experience with the population served (adults with severe mental illness.) Experience with outreach or community-based service models and knowledge of local community resources and service systems. Experience in the mental health field. Applicants who hold or are seeking licensure or certification from the North Carolina Addictions Specialist Professional Practice Board are encouraged to apply.

Required Licenses/Certifications:

Valid driver’s license – driving state vehicle required

Campus Security Authority Responsibilities:

Not Applicable.

Position/Schedule Requirements:

Evening work occasionally, Weekend work occasionally
