The Jewish Healthcare Foundation is hiring
The Jewish Healthcare Foundation is actively recruiting a full time Project Coordinator for its 15217 Neighborhood-based Teen Mental Health Initiative.
The 15217 Neighborhood-based Teen Mental Health Initiative is a collaborative effort among the Jewish Healthcare Foundation, the Jewish Community Center, Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, and Jewish Family and Community Services to build a safety net for teens with mental health issues. The program has three objectives: increasing community awareness of the reality of increasing teen behavioral health problems, promoting options for where to turn for help, improving availability and connections to mental health services and supports, and strengthening resiliency among teens and families. The goal is to design and implement an initiative that builds upon existing partnerships, reflects the diverse cultural and faith-based experiences of the community, and can be adapted and implemented in other neighborhoods.
