Adolescents have unique healthcare needs, and OneWorld has stepped up to meet those needs by creating a first-of-its kind clinic that caters to 12-24 year olds.  We have a Teen & Young Adult Health Center located in South Omaha, and we are looking for a Behavioral Health Therapist to join that team and help make a difference in the lives of our community youth.  This Behavioral Health Therapist will provide culturally competent, therapeutic services to adolescents and their families.  The Behavioral Health Therapist will use both Collaborative and Integrated Care models. Utilizing the Integrated Care model, the Behavioral Health Therapist works alongside our medical providers, partnering with them to ensure that our patients receive the best care possible.  Therapy is provided either in person via warm hand-offs, or via tele-behavioral health.  It includes behavioral, mental, substance abuse, and social work services.  The Collaborative Care model is used to treat common mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety that require systematic follow-up.  Therapists provide approximately 30 minute interventions using evidence-based techniques such as Behavioral Activation, Problem-Solving Treatment, Motivational Interviewing, etc.  They track patient encounters, progress, treatment recommendations, and clinical outcomes using a registry.  They also meet weekly with the psychiatric consultant to discuss patient progress.  All treatment recommendations are made to the Primary Care Physician.

The schedule will be 40 hours per week, Monday – Friday, generally from 9:00am – 6:00pm. The position is located in our Teen & Young Adult Health Center in South Omaha (24th & H).
