This position will also rotate shifts to be available for Telehealth crisis screening and assessments for referrals received from first responders.
Office locations rotate between 5015 S IH 35; and 911 Call Center (CTECC) 5010 Old Manor Road, 78723. There is extensive latitude for the exercise of independent judgement.
