Manager - School Mental
Health Nursing Team
The Toronto Central Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) is dedicated to supporting and enhancing the quality of life, independence, health and well-being of individuals in the community by offering a single point of access for community services and demonstrating leadership and excellence in community care.
A new initiative, the Mental Health & Addiction Nurses in District School Boards Program is important to Ontario's plan to improve service and support for children and youth with mental health and addictions needs. The program will help district school boards build the capacity to recognize and respond to student mental health and addiction issues.
We are looking for an experienced and achievement-oriented manager to lead the planning, development and implementation of this new and innovative program in district school boards served by the Toronto Central CCAC. A significant proportion of mental health problems and illnesses have their onset during childhood or adolescence; early recognition and intervention can be critical. This will be your goal as you combine your interdisciplinary focus and passion for mental health nursing to build and manage a dedicated School Mental Health Nursing Team to support students with mental illnesses and substance abuse concerns.
As RN in good standing with the CNO, you have direct clinical experience in providing mental health and addictions services for children and youth, including school-based programs, enhanced by 3 to 5 years of success managing in a multidisciplinary, culturally diverse health care environment. This role calls for a proven leader with a track record of building teams and advancing the clinical practice of multiple health disciplines, someone who has used theory and research/evidence-based outcomes in practice, and is familiar with relevant legislation and committed to the highest level of customer service and client care. A master's degree in Nursing or Health Administration would be ideal. English/French bilingualism is an asset.
