Childhaven has an exciting opportunity for a Wraparound Clinical Manager in our Flourish WISe Program. The WISe Program at Childhaven is a comprehensive and intensive service for young children 0-5 years of age and their families that includes team-based planning and mental health supports stemming from the Wraparound with Intensive Services (WISe) model. This innovative, infant/early childhood mental health-focused Wraparound program aims to create better outcomes for young children, to build child and family stability, and to support a child’s success in their home and community.
WISe/Wraparound is a team-based planning and service process designed to create better outcomes for children, to build child and family stability, and to support every child’s success in their home and the community. WISe teams are comprised of a Facilitator, Parent Partner, and an Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health (IECMH) Therapist. These WISe Wraparound Delivery Teams are collectively supported by the Wraparound Coach and Clinical Manager. Members of these teams will work closely together and with other system partners to collaboratively develop and implement an individualized plan of care, monitor the efficacy of the plan, and work towards success over time. The Wraparound Clinical Manager will be a key role in supporting each WISe team, particularly the Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health Therapists. He/she will be responsible for the day to day clinical management of the Wraparound therapeutic program components across the entire WISe program.
