Job Summary

The Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) “Behavioral Health Specialist” works with the EMS Division and Community Resource Paramedic (CRP) to provide expanded services to district residents who present with complex medical, behavioral, and social service needs.

This is accomplished by assisting individuals with complex health care system navigation, coordinating with other health care and social service organizations, and providing connection to appropriate resources.
