Clinical Consultation Group
for CMH Clinicians
The frenetic pace of agency work in community mental health makes finding time and space to think deeply about our work difficult. With the pressures of documentation requirements, community trauma, and limited resources, these demands overshadow clinical thinking. In response to the needs of our community, NCSPP is providing an additional forum to reflect on our clinical work.
This consultation group will process clinical work by licensed or unlicensed employees of county-funded or non-profit CMH agencies, and will be led by seasoned clinicians who have experience in community settings.The groups will meet approximately every other week, on either Wednesday or Thursday evening, and be held at the consultants offices, all located in San Francisco.
