Posted on: June 28, 2020

Job Description:

OverviewThe Juvenile Justice Assessment Team (JJAT) seeks to increase behavioral health screening and assessments for youth ages 12 to 20 that enter the juvenile justice system. JJAT aims to divert youth with behavioral needs and diagnoses from further involvement into the juvenile justice system and decrease any incidences or severity of chemical dependency, mental health, and/or emotional disorders in young people. The position works in partnership with JJAT Mental Health Assessors, Substance Use Assessors and King County Juvenile Court Staff.

The Family Partner is a position within JJAT that provides community resource connection and support to youth and families referred from juvenile court/probation officers, Becca Programs Staff, and JJAT staff for family partner services. The primary focus of the Family Partner is to connect youth with outpatient behavioral health services. The Family Partner is responsible for coordinating caregiver support activities and resources and providing individual support to youth that supports engagement in JJAT services. The Family Partner will support the families of court-involved youth to be active members in their child's care to maximize progress toward plan goals and objectives.

Celebrating diversity and creating a culture of inclusion increases creativity, innovation, problem solving, and teamwork.
