Mental Health Support Specialist (School-based)
Appleton, WI

Christian Family Solutions is a faith-based, religious organization committed to our mission, healing and helping people in need through the ministry of Jesus Christ. As more and more people seek help with difficult issues, we want to be the counseling resource they turn to for hope, healing, and peace.

We are recruiting a full time school counselor to provide services through our School Based Partnership Program. This role has been created to support the growing mental health needs that are arising in the schools that we serve. This position does not provide clinical therapy, but instead focuses on case management duties and provides mental wellness in schools.

Our School Based Partnership Program is a customized and comprehensive way for schools to assist in meeting the emotional or psychological needs of their students by providing them with convenient, affordable services. We are actively seeking individuals who are members of a WELS, ELS, or confessional Lutheran church and have a strong desire to learn more about integrating Christian counseling practices based on these principles.

God has blessed us with an incredible privilege of healing and helping people in need. Click here to view a video about us. You’ll see what a privilege it is to call ourselves “Christian” and to reflect Christian love to everyone we serve.

This is a full time role and the applicant selected will be eligible for Christian Family Solutions' full benefits package. This benefits package includes health, dental, and vision insurance, short and long term disability, 401(K) plan and match policy, and PTO. Hours for this position are generally 8am- 4:00pm, Monday - Friday.

What you will be doing

The School Counselor will be responsible for providing mental health support to schools and students, facilitating psycho-educational groups, and assisting in case management duties. 

Quality mental health delivered with integrity is the first commitment we make to our clients. An additional commitment we make is to offer the option of Christian faith principles integrated with a client’s treatment, as needed and desired by the client. Research has proven that such faith-integrated treatment is effective and has longer lasting impact. It is an approach we are committed to delivering, and we train our staff to provide it. You will work in a unique environment where both your professional skills and your faith can grow.
