About the Role

CASA Mental Health is an established non-profit organization delivering holistic, culturally-safe wrap-around mental health services to Albertans and their families. CASA provides mental health service to the missing middle – mental health treatment for diagnosed children and youth, in between prevention and promotion in primary and community care, and acute treatment in hospital.

 

CASA’s team of mental health professionals are trauma experts committed to delivering service in collaboration with community partners. This includes assessment and treatment for up to 4,000 children, youth and their families each year, from community outreach settings to intensive treatment programs.

Job Description

Are you passionate about the advancement of high-quality children’s mental health services? Are you a highly-skilled clinician looking to share your skills and experience to support other clinicians? The Professional Development and Education team is a collaborative inter-professional group that works to build capacity in mental health services providers through coaching, mentoring, education and consultation. The team supports service providers both within CASA and in Northern and Rural Alberta. Join a growing team with the common goal of promoting mental health excellence in our colleagues and rural partners!


The Mental Health Consultant will:

  • Create education and training materials for learning events, through working collaboratively with the other consultant team members.

  • Deliver education and training events, both virtually and in-person.

  • Support the development of knowledge and skill, by coaching individual performance in the delivery of mental health supports and services to children and families.

  • Act as a resource to team members and regional service providers on issues related to specific areas of expertise.

  • Support the development of mental health knowledge and skill by mentoring new children’s mental health therapists. Coaching and mentoring activities may include:

    • Joint assessments;
