Published 13 days ago

The Mental Health Legal Advisors Committee (MHLAC) seeks an Office Manager to help discharge its mission of providing legal representation to persons who have or are perceived to have mental health concerns. The Office Manager hired will work full-time at MHLAC’s main office (currently Boston; office is relocating to Quincy February of 2022). Our legal office is slowing adapting to hybrid work but the OM is still our glue; someone we can depend on to help or know where to find the answer. And when they don’t know the answer; investigate and ask questions until a solution is found. Making sure our systems are running smoothly is the priority. Making sure our clients are heard and treated with empathy and professionalism is our mission.

MHLAC is an affiliated state agency of the Supreme Judicial Court, created by the legislature in 1973. MHLAC offers free legal assistance to indigent people with mental health challenges throughout the Commonwealth. MHLAC’s experienced and talented staff focuses on identifying and addressing issues faced by significant numbers of clients in common. Approaches to solving client problems depend on the issue itself and the best strategy for accomplishing results. Tactics include class-based and targeted individual litigation, as well as legislative, administrative, and public advocacy.

MHLAC also serves as a statewide resource on mental health law and policy. It generates legal and policy materials, testifies on proposed laws and regulations, and has a long history of providing educational and training programs for public counsel, legal services attorneys, social workers, judges, and the general public. See http://mhlac.org/what-we-do/ for a description of MHLAC’s approach and work.

MHLAC is committed to addressing racial equity concerns. In making strategic work choice decisions, priority is given to issues affecting persons with multiple characteristics that expose them to bias (e.g. persons of color who have or are perceived to have mental health concerns). This is consistent with workplace values. MHLAC is committed to creating an inclusive environment that promotes and values racial equity and diversity. We strongly encourage and welcome people of color, people with disabilities, those with personal experience related to mental health concerns, members of the LGBTQ+ community and people with diverse life experiences and backgrounds to apply.
