Thresholds, Chicago, IL
Thresholds, Illinois’ oldest and largest provider of mental health services, is seeking a part-time psychiatrist for two new programs serving older youth and young adults, which will open soon in the western suburbs of Chicago. The position is 4-5 hours a week for the first year, going up to around 7 or 8 hours after that. Our new MindStrong program will provide state-of-the-art services to youth and young adults who are experiencing a First Episode of psychosis, based on the most recent research showing positive long-term outcomes with early intervention in psychosis. The second program, Emerge West, will also serve older youth and young adults with mental health diagnoses, and will build on the model of our successful and groundbreaking outreach service team for this population in Chicago.
