Company: Telecare Corp.
Location: Federal Way
Posted on: May 12, 2022

Job Description:

Founded in 1965, Telecare is a rapidly growing mental health care company dedicated to making a difference for our clients, the community, and our employees. We offer an array of mental health services to adults with serious mental illness. We partner with public sector entities and behavioral health organizations and have over 155 programs and over 4,300 employees across the country. And we're growing all the time! When you work at Telecare, you help to empower thousands of individuals every day in their journeys of recovery.

Program of Assertive Community Treatment (PACT) serves individuals with severe and persistent mental illness who also experience difficulties with daily living activities. PACT services are delivered by a group of transdisciplinary mental health staff who work as a team and provide the majority of the treatment, rehabilitation, and support services consumers need to achieve their goals. The PACT team is mobile and delivers services in community locations to enable each consumer to find and live in their own residence and find and maintain work in community jobs rather than expecting the consumer to come to the program. Seventy-five percent or more of the services are provided outside of the program offices in locations that are comfortable and convenient for consumers
