(CEHD) is seeking a Clinic Director to oversee a new outreach initiative 
involving delivery of mental health and wellness services (in addition to 
college and career readiness services) to the traditionally underserved area of 
Louisville referred to as the “West End.”   We are in final stages of developing 
and opening a community-based clinic embedded in this community, as well as a 
“mini-clinic” intended to be housed in one of the traditionally high-need high 
schools in the West End.  The successful applicant will have primary 
responsibilities of finalizing development of, and directing all aspects of this 
community-based mental health and wellness clinic.  The individual in this
