Adult Outpatient Team Lead

Pittsburgh Mercy
Pittsburgh, PA

We’re a community-based health and human services organization using person-centered care to treat our area’s most vulnerable populations. We work with families in settings that are safe and familiar to them, and view them as equal partners when planning, developing, and monitoring care.
Our mission is to be a compassionate, transforming presence within our communities. We reach out to offer help – and hope – to people who are experiencing:
• Mental illness and substance use
• Physical health needs
• Intellectual disabilities
• Traumatic events or circumstances, including homelessness + abuse


We’re looking for a Team Lead to be the “go to” for the daily unit operations of our General Population Outpatient team. Your main responsibility will be to the people we serve, ensuring that policies and procedures are followed, and that benchmarks for performance are met in an efficient and effective manner. As such, you’ll be leading a therapist team to success through a high level of communication – and strong relationship building with both internal and external providers and resources.

The General Population Outpatient Team works primarily with adults experiencing mood disorders, those with short term therapy needs, and/or reactions to traumatic events. Additionally, the therapists on the General Team provide programming for Creative and Expressive Arts in therapy, domestic violence, perinatal and postpartum mood disorders, and work with active duty and former military members and their families. The Team Lead assists the Practice Administrator in providing clinical supervision and leadership to the therapist team, helping the therapists build clinical skills, meet productivity and quality measures, and identifying needs and barriers to treatment for the population we serve. Additionally, the Team Lead maintains a small caseload and provides individual and/or group therapy to those within our target population.


We’re looking for employees who are professional, flexible, compassionate, and can remain composed in stressful situations. We need a leader who is solutions-focused, creative, and an ace troubleshooter. If you’re an effective, inspiring, and experienced clinician looking for the next step we’d love to hear from you!
