Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare Program Supervisor I - PSRB in Portland, Oregon

Cascadia, one of the largest community behavioral health providers in the state of Oregon, delivers whole health care -- integrated mental health and addiction services, primary care and housing -- to support our communities. Our approach is recovery-oriented and trauma-informed. Cascadia hires innovative, compassionate and dedicated staff who are aligned with trauma informed care and who are committed to working effectively with diverse community populations, and who are expected to strengthen such capacity if hired.

This is a full time position located at a residential treatment facility in SW Portland. The schedule is Sunday through Thursday 1pm-9:30pm.

The Program Supervisor I works as a member of an interdisciplinary team and is responsible for the management of licensed residential program(s). This position involves staff supervision, program operation, and clinical oversight of individuals with mental illnesses, the majority of whom are under the jurisdiction of the Psychiatric Security Review Board (PSRB). The clients we serve may have co-occurring disorders including but not limited to traumatic brain injuries (TBI), substance use and addictions, and/or developmental delays. This position involves participation and implementation of program goals and objectives to promote a strengths-based, resident-centered approach to assisting residents in achieving individual goals and ultimately transitioning to a less restrictive setting. With the high prevalence of trauma among individuals receiving mental health services, it is required that the Program Supervisor understand the effects of trauma on health, coping, and other aspects of the lives of those we serve.
