Program Description

The Contra Costa JACS program provides crisis, short and long-term mental health services to youth incarcerated at juvenile hall as well as with youth and their families in the community. Trainees will learn assessment, diagnostic and crisis intervention skills, short and long-term treatment planning, and clinical documentation skills in our electronic health records system. The trainees will meet with clients for assessment and treatment at Contra Costa Juvenile Hall and in the community. Trainees will be exposed to multiple trauma-informed theoretical approaches and modalities. They will also have the opportunity to participate in multidisciplinary teams with doctors, nurses, licensed mental health clinicians, community support workers, probation department staff, and others in a coordinated and supported manner. There is a $17 per hour stipend.
