Thresholds’ Emerging Adults Division is seeking a dynamic clinician and diagnostician to manage the telephone intake, in-person screening, and referral process to our programs, and to promote our Young Adult Specialty Coordinated Care services to Chicago area hospitals, schools, and community partners. Experience working with youth, young adults and their families is essential. Assessment, counseling, and engagement skills are required, as is a working knowledge of DSM 5 diagnostic criteria. Understanding of public and private insurance systems is a plus.
