Do you enjoy working with clients with moderate to severe mental health symptoms, facilitating growth and supporting them to get all of their needs met as equal, valued and self-respecting individuals? Do you see clients as individuals, rather than being defined by their diagnoses? If so, you would fit in well with PathPoint’s Behavioral Health Division, the award-winning and long-running agency that is also forward thinking and client-centered.

PathPoint is seeking a full-time Case Manager for our Paths to Recovery community-based program in Santa Barbara, CA.

You’ll also assume primary responsibility for developing, writing, implementing, evaluating and revising treatment goals and plans, and providing one-on-one support to clients as needed.
