Job Description:

In preparation for the opening of the Crisis Recovery Center, DuPage County Health Department Crisis Services is expanding the team to include the role of Safety Specialist. The Safety Specialist role will be one of the first points of contact for individuals coming into the current facility seeking crisis services and support. Staff in these roles will have primary responsibility for greeting and assisting clients upon entry into the building, overseeing the reception areas, and supporting a safe environment for all in the building.

The Crisis Recovery Center (CRC) is the critical next step in DuPage County Health Department's decades-long journey to build the infrastructure needed to support a best-in-class behavioral health system and ensures all DuPage County residents will have "someone to call, someone to respond, and somewhere to go" when experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis. The CRC will help residents de-escalate, stabilize, and connect to community resources catered to their individual mental health and substance use treatment needs. The building design and operations will ensure individuals and their families feel welcome, respected, and secure throughout every step of their care. The CRC serves as an alternative to hospital emergency departments and simplifies access to crisis care for all individuals, families, and first responders.
