Headway Emotional Services provides comprehensive mental health therapy, counseling and classes to more than 11,000 families in our Golden Valley, Richfield and Hopkins locations each year. Originally called The Storefront Group, Headway was founded in 1970 by a group of suburban parents who wanted to help kids and families in crisis in their communities. Their mission, still true today, was to transform lives by providing hope, healing and empowerment through treatment, intervention and education.

As a Case Manager, you will have the opportunity to directly impact the lives of children and their families through our successful mental health programs. You will be part of a caring and highly regarded staff of professionals in our Hopkins, Minnesota location.

We are looking for a professional to coordinate mental health services for children and families. In this role, you will be responsible for coordinating, arranging, and facilitating services for children with significant mental health symptoms that impact their daily lives. The goal is to improve the overall functioning of the family and reduce the need for and reliance upon out of home placements and other services that are more intensive, restrictive, and costly. You will manage an average of 15 active clients per month and ensure the case management treatment plans and functional assessments are completed in accordance with organizational, DHS, insurance, and county guidelines.
