The Crisis Clinician supports the Lead Clinician in providing clinical services to youth enrolled in the STEP program, co-facilitating training for the STEP team, completing documentation, and supporting the clinical integrity of the program. 


STEP stands for Skills, Transitions, Exploration and Progress. This program is a partnership between Kaiser Permanente and Seneca, providing Partial Hospitalization services to youth ages 12-17.  Youth in the STEP program receive services provided by a Psychiatrist, Registered Nurse, Master’s level Clinicians, and a Bachelors level Counselor. The goal of the STEP program is to provide intensive, short-term and stabilization services to enable our clients to step down to lower levels of outpatient mental health treatment. The main treatment modality is group therapy. Groups include a skills group, recreational group, circle group, and future focus.  All groups are designed to teach youth the skills necessary to help them learn about their mental health, provide psychoeducation, and help them learn skills to feel better and be safe.
