An exciting relief full time opportunity is now available for a Rural & Remote Mental Health & Substance Use Nurse to join the experienced community mental health Adult Chronic Support Services (ACSS) team in Williams Lake.

As the ACSS Nurse you will provide urgent outreach, responsive assessment and treatment, case management, GP shared care, education, and support to individuals experiencing acute and/or chronic mental illness and/or problem substance use.

Community Profile: The growing community of Williams Lake is located amidst sparkling lakes and rolling ranchland in the heart of the Cariboo Chilcotin Region of British Columbia. As the largest city in the area, it serves as a business, industrial and service hub for outlying communities and provides employment opportunities in the forestry, mining, agriculture and tourism sectors. Home to the famous Williams Lake Stampede, this former “cowtown” has grown into a vibrant city that offers its residents a comfortable blend of urban living and western charm. Horseback riding, river rafting, fishing and camping are popular recreational pursuits in the area.

If you are motivated to be challenged professionally, this is the move for you. We offer excellent benefits and opportunities to maximize your skills. Interior Health is an organization where you have room to grow and where life outside of work is just as important to us as it is to you. Apply today!
