Public Health Psychiatrist or Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Women’s Mental Health Shelter at the Park Avenue Armory


Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, widely recognized as one of New York’s premier human services providers, is a 126-year-old settlement house that provides an extensive array of effective and integrated services—social, educational, legal, health, housing, mental health, nutritional and fitness—which significantly improve the lives of 15,000 people in need each year, ages 3 to 103, on the East Side of Manhattan. Our clients include older adults, homeless and formerly homeless adults, children and families, recent immigrants, disabled persons, adult learners and more. For more information on Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, please visit www.lenoxhill.org.


Located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in the historic mixed-used Park Avenue Armory, Lenox Hill Neighborhood House’s Women’s Mental Health Shelter is a 24-hour program that addresses the critical issues facing 80 homeless women, age 45 and over, who have histories of mental illness. Through a comprehensive continuum of care and programming that includes social work services, medical, nursing and psychiatric care, specialized peer support, housing placement, benefits assistance, arts and recreation and food and nutrition programs, our talented, multi-disciplinary team helps clients to transition from homelessness to permanent housing.


Responsibilities

We are seeking a New York State-licensed Psychiatrist or Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, or a combination of both, to join our multi-disciplinary team of mental health professionals caring for at-risk women in our Women’s Mental Health Shelter. Must have knowledge of, and interest in, the New York City healthcare system, barriers to treatment and the challenges of structural racism and health inequalities which impact the care and treatment of the women we serve. Candidates should be public health-focused to help our clients to optimize wellness and achieve housing-readiness through a combination of medication support (as needed); mental health assessments for community resources such as supportive housing and Assertive Community Treatment team applications; and advocacy that promotes healthcare parity for persons experiencing homelessness. The MD and/or NP would become the provider of record for women who prefer to receive psychopharmacological and therapeutic services on-site, opposed to in clinics or via mobile teams. For our clients who are already connected to outside providers, the MD or NP may assist with case consultations and crisis intervention as needed.

Commitment

·      We are open to hiring one provider or a combination of providers to fill a minimum total of 21 hours per week; full-time service is also possible.

·      We will consider third-party contracts.


·      One day per week minimum (8 hours) is required for each provider who may be interested.

·      All client work is to be done on-site, though a hybrid in-person/remote service arrangement may be enacted based on fluctuations in New York City’s COVID-19 infection rates.

·      It is the expectation that the Psychiatrist or Psychiatric NP attend a weekly, multi-disciplinary clinical meeting to discuss high-risk cases and treatment planning for our clients.

·      Psychiatrist or Psychiatric NP should be available by phone if needed for urgent clinical issues that arise outside of on-site hours.

·      Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is provided.
