HSPHD and DOCCR are jointly requesting applications from qualified individual mental health professionals to perform mobile assessments with Hennepin County youth being served in the juvenile corrections and child welfare systems. Referred clients may be involved with Juvenile Probation, Child Protection, Children’s Mental Health Case Management, Child Welfare Case Management or Initial Contact and Assessment (i.e., intake for HSPHD). Many of the youth requiring assessments will not be voluntary clients. These youth may have backgrounds characterized by abuse or neglect, domestic violence, absenting, truancy, delinquency, acting out or aggressive behaviors, substance abuse, out-of-home placement, sexual exploitation, or exposure to trauma. Some of the youth may have histories of non-compliant, passive/aggressive, and/or threatening behavior when dealing with professionals. Additionally, providers may encounter parents who prove difficult to work with and who exhibit some of the same characteristics as the youth. Only providers willing and able to work with such clients should submit an application.
