With solid educational foundation and 12 years’ experience in various areas of the mental health field, I am prepared to make a difference in the lives of youth. My relevant qualifications include a Master of Arts in Counseling. I am also trained in Nonviolent Crisis Prevention and CPR certified. I have experienced involving youth in community activities to foster volunteer attitudes. I have worked in private practices, served as an education youth supervisor, facilitated diverse youth groups, and worked in Utilization Review for both inpatient and outpatient levels of care for youth. My previous position was a Qualified Mental Health Professional for the Dallas County-Youth Advocate Program.
I have provided case management and psychosocial/rehabilitative inventions to youth in need of mental health services. Services included but were not limited to development of treatment goals and objectives, referral, linkage, advocacy, monitoring, psychoeducation, crisis intervention, and skills training. Also, experienced as Treatment Coordinator training in Utilization Management/Leadership at Behavioral Hospital. In this role, I was responsible for completing reviews: initial, concurrent, discharge, peer, retro, and appeals for the Inpatient and Outpatient programs for youth.
During my tenure, I have successfully upheld the length of stay while simultaneously advocating for the safety and well-being of my patients. Not only my passion lies with helping youth, but also, helping their families by analyzing, researching, and providing a fitting solution to their problems and needs. As the Founder/and Executive Director of The Little Sapphires Challengers, I am very delighted for having the opportunity to receive my passion daily-Lisa Bailey
