Do you enjoy developing relationships and working with youth, families, community organizations? Do you understand that a young person in distress is a whole person, not a disorder? Do you have an interest in research?
Then you may be the right fit for ACCESS, an ambitious and novel Canadian research project in youth mental health care. Over the course of the project, we will be looking for people who can complete our administrative, clinical or research teams, at our central office or at one of our sites. Check back often for new opportunities to work, intern or study with us.
The ACCESS Clinician works as a part of a team participating in the ACCESS Open Minds network, a pan-Canadian research and evaluation project funded by a partnership between the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Graham Boeckh Foundation.
You will actively participate in the transformation of youth mental health services being provided to youth aged 11 to 25 years old, at the heart of Parc-Extension. The work locations are located at CLSC Parc-Extension and CLSC Côte-des-Neiges.
You will apply your clinical experience towards applying the values of the ACCESS OM project, which favour the active engagement of youth in their own care, and in supporting and pushing for change among both the youth and those who work with them, as well as their families/carers and the community at large. You believe in the potential of youth to identify and evaluate their challenges and difficulties; you accompany youth in their journey towards wellness, and help them to discover solutions that will meet their needs, as well as towards the services and interventions that will best respond to their individual situations.
