Mental Health Coach

This is a full time, work from home position, and coaching takes place exclusively through chat.

As a Ginger.io Health Coach, you will help people learn how to live healthier lives. Each day, hundreds of people will download the Ginger.io app, looking for help in discovering the personal strengths, motivations and skills that will enable them to make lasting changes in their mindsets and behaviors. And by joining us now while we're still developing our program, you'll be providing feedback on what works, what doesn't, and be instrumental in bringing the Ginger.io vision into reality.

Role of Mental Health Coach

First and foremost, coaches are there to listen, build rapport, and provide empathetic support. Coaching takes place exclusively over text chat, which is why coaches must have excellent writing skills and the ability to convey warmth through this medium. They must make all members feel welcome and supported, and coaches must maintain a warm, calm presence regardless of the circumstance.

Over time, coaches assist members in taking slow, steady steps that lead to meaningful change in their lives. They check-in regularly to offer support/encouragement, track successes and setbacks, and provide resources, tips and strategies to facilitate progress.

Coaches are an integral part of of each member's multidisciplinary care team. They use previous clinical experience, good judgment, and our guidelines to discern when to refer members to other internal resources. You will collaborate with our psychiatrists and therapists to help develop and reinforce treatment decisions.

We value applicants of all backgrounds and comply with all EEO/AA requirements. We look forward to receiving your application!
