Job Description:

**Position serves locations in NC, VA, and Eastern Shore of MD** (candidates must reside in one of these states and be willing to travel)
The Regional Director of Mental Health (RDMH) is integral to ensuring the mental services meet or exceed the local standard of care and that the programs provided are consistent across all sites. The RDMH assumes a consultative role within the field operations organization, meaning they provide guidance, direction and support of Mental Health programs as requested by the Regional Directors of Operations (RDOs), Regional Nurse Executives (RNEs), Vice Presidents of Operations, and/or the Vice President of Mental Health (VP MH), ensuring Mental Health staff are trained and supported in the delivery of care, acting as a conduit for the sharing of information and collaborating with field operations and clinical leadership. The RDMH will have a primary focus on implementation of mental health programs, training mental health staff, and training custody/security staff at our county locations. RDMH functions in close collaboration with the operational leadership to provide clinical oversight, case consultation, training, and on-boarding, suicide prevention programmatic tools and clinical supervision to site mental health leadership. The RDMH also participates in patient safety, recruiting, retention, and business development initiatives. Periodically, the RDMH may be asked to participate in co-creating performance management plans for mental health staff. The performance management process will be led by the Health Services Administer (HSA) and/ or Regional Director of Operations with input from the RDMH. The RDMH supervises the Regional Mental Health Specialist in their region. On a periodic basis the RDMH may be asked to take a more active role in the performance management of Mental Health staff; however, that should be considered the exception to the rule and in most instances temporary.
