PsycholgoistJob Description

Our Mission Statement:

 

Rooted Mental Health (RMH) is a cooperative (co-op) group behavioral health practice focused on compassion for self, clients, and community.  We serve low-income and other vulnerable Oregonians facing barriers to wellness due to mental health difficulties and traumatic histories.  We believe that in order for individuals to truly heal from issues like mental illness, substance use, unsafe relationships, and others, we must address the underlying root causes of individual, family, and community trauma.  We combine evidence-based practices with innovative treatments to address mental health from a whole-person perspective.  Our goal is to help clients thrive, not just survive.

 

What makes us different:

 

At Rooted Mental Health, we believe in putting our values around equity, integrity, simplicity and transparency into practice.  We believe in taking care of our staff by providing paid leave, clinical supervision, and consultation in a supportive team environment.  Most importantly, all full-time staff have the opportunity to be invited to buy into co-ownership built into their contracts.  We are committed to developing a truly cooperative model of delivering behavioral healthcare.
