The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Virginia (UVA) School of Medicine seeks candidate for a part-time (20 hours/week) Licensed Mental Health Professional (LMHP). This position will work directly with The Virginia Mental Health Access Program (VMAP) and will also work closely with the Division of Neurodevelopmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at UVA. VMAP is a pediatric focused training, consultation, and referral program designed to increase capacity for Primary Care Providers (PCPs) to treat and respond to common pediatric mental health conditions including depression, anxiety and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). VMAP consists of five regional hubs that provide localized mental health consultations for PCPs.

Each regional hub consists of a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist (CAP), a licensed mental health professional (LMHP), and a care navigator. This LMHP will work closely with the other half-time LMHP to provide oversight, coordination and management of his/her/their respective regional hub and serve as the initial point of contact for incoming calls to the VMAP line. LMHPs receive and screen incoming calls from PCPs, provide case conceptualization and diagnosis support, and work alongside VMAP CAPs on consultations.

The LMHP will also supervise the regional hub’s care navigators. VMAP’s care navigators provide direct family support for youth identified with behavioral health diagnoses who need additional services outside of primary care, including referral to and engagement with external behavioral health services. The LMHP position will works closely with the care navigator to ensure PCPs are directed towards the right referrals and resources based on the case, the consultation, and the patient’s specific needs.
