Role of Mental Health Coach
First and foremost, coaches are there to listen, build rapport, and provide empathetic support. Coaching takes place exclusively over text chat, which is why coaches must have excellent writing skills and the ability to convey warmth through this medium. They must make all members feel welcome and supported, and coaches must maintain a warm, calm presence regardless of the circumstance.
Over time, coaches assist members in taking slow, steady steps that lead to meaningful change in their lives. They check-in regularly to offer support/encouragement, track successes and setbacks, and provide resources, tips and strategies to facilitate progress.
Coaches are an integral part of of each member’s multidisciplinary care team. They use previous clinical experience, good judgment, and our guidelines to discern when to refer members to other internal resources. You will collaborate with our psychiatrists and therapists to help develop and reinforce treatment decisions.
We value applicants of all backgrounds and comply with all EEO/AA requirements. We look forward to receiving your application!
