Windhorse staff members are second to none. They treat you not like a patient or client, but like a human being.

— Alejandro, Windhorse Alum

Windhorse is always seeking compassionate individuals to become part of our team. We seek individuals who have a strong sense of their own basic sanity, and confidence in the basic sanity and health of others. We encourage our staff to have a mindfulness or contemplative practice to help cultivate the capacity for being present, available, and attuned to those we support. Most members of our staff have a background that aligns well with Windhorse philosophy and approach. In particular, our organization seeks to find individuals that are willing to look beyond clinical diagnoses and treat clients with the dignity they deserve.

Housemate

Windhorse Integrative Mental Health is seeking housemates. A housemate lives with a person experiencing significant emotional distress (i.e. depression, schizophrenia, trauma, etc.) and needing a high level of support and interaction in their recovery process. Windhorse uses a mindfulness-based philosophy in working with these individuals. Each household is fully supported by a clinical team. This is an excellent opportunity for a well-grounded person interested in supporting those seeking recovery and well-being. It is an opportunity for self-growth and work within the human services. Specific experience in this field is not required. Being engaged in a personal contemplative discipline (i.e. meditation, yoga, etc.) would be supportive to this job.

Benefits include a weekly stipend, rent and utilities are paid for, a monthly food allowance, the freedom to work up to 25 hours per week at another job, ongoing individual and group training and supervision.

We ask a minimum of a six month commitment. Please send a cover letter and resume to [email protected]

Internships

We work with a local college of social work in offering one internship position per school year. We currently don’t have the resources to offer more supervision or work with multiple schools. How we work here is intensive, team-oriented, and takes specific training to our approach. It is not easily translated into the current academic language for the mental health field. It is in our long range plan to have more accessibility, both for clients and students wanting to experience our approach. To learn more, please email [email protected]windhorseimh.org
