Clara Martin Center is an organization that offers job seekers a solid opportunity to build a career within a community mental health environment.


Whether you are seeking a clinical position or an administrative position, Clara Martin provides an environment where building on the strengths and interests of staff can complement both staff and employer alike. Many of our managers and supervisors started in other positions and moved throughout the agency as their skills and interests grew over time.

There are currently over 175 professionals at 12 different locations throughout the Clara Martin service region. Some also work out of area public schools, primary care clinics, and even correctional settings through our collaborations with community partners.  Staff members include psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, counselors, marriage and family therapists, educators, outreach workers, case managers, recovery specialists, and a range of administrative professionals for the financial functions, administrative support, quality assurance, information technology, and human resource development.
