The Urban Justice Center Mental Health Project (MHP) seeks a full-time Intake Coordinator.

Who Are We?

The Urban Justice Center Mental Health Project is a team of attorneys, social workers, advocates, and peer specialists dedicated to disrupting and dismantling the cycle of hospitalization, homelessness, and incarceration that traps low-income New Yorkers with serious mental health concerns. We intervene at all parts of this cycle: we work to secure financial and medical benefits to prevent homelessness and hospitalization; we provide peer advocacy and social work support to empower clients in the community; we collaborate on impact litigation; we ensure proper discharge planning occurs prior to release from jail and psychiatric hospitals; we connect people to the appropriate organizations through advice and referrals; and we host community workshops to educate people about their rights and how to advocate for themselves and their peers.

Job Summary & Qualifications

The Intake Coordinator will be the primary contact person for people seeking services from MHP. The Intake Coordinator will have a deep knowledge of MHP’s practice areas and work closely with the team to determine whether a potential client is eligible for MHP’s services and to assign new cases to advocates. The Intake Coordinator will also provide meaningful referrals to other organizations when MHP cannot accept a case.

• Conduct preliminary screening and assessment of individuals seeking services to identify legal issues and determine eligibility;

• Return and document calls from MHP warmlines;

• Meet with people who walk in to our office seeking help (when the office re-opens);

• Provide referrals to other organizations, where appropriate;

• Maintain wait lists for services;

• Keep detailed client records in electronic databases and physical files;

• Assist with medical records requests for SSI applications;

• Present about MHP’s services at community events, both virtually and in-person; and

• Work on limited individual client matters, as needed.

Qualifications include:

• Bachelor’s degree;

• Fluency in Spanish (required);

• Excellent telephone and e-mail communication skills;

• Ability to maintain confidentiality and to work with people living with mental health concerns;

• Meticulous attention to detail and organization;

• Ability to work independently, to efficiently prioritize tasks, and to meet deadlines;

• Ability to learn and utilize electronic databases to maintain detailed client records;

• Demonstrated commitment to social justice and anti-oppression work; and
