As a full-time (1.0 FTE) professional in the expanding counseling services center at Camp Lejeune, just miles from the beautiful Eastern North Carolina beaches, the Clinician will conduct an initial evaluation of Marines at risk for suicide; administer an experimental intervention to augment standard care comprised of caring text messages sent to participants at intervals over a 12 month period; and provide behavioral health evaluation and intervention for Marines in the outpatient behavioral health clinic.
The Clinician will also have myriad opportunities to collaborate with existing clinical staff on the coordination and delivery of various services for Marines, Sailors and their families.
This is a suicide prevention study. The Clinician’s experience must demonstrate possession of advanced practice skills and judgment dealing with sensitive populations who may or may not have suicidal thoughts or behavior. Experience with military populations—particularly the Marine Corps—and familiarity with military terms and culture are highly desired.
