Bowen Center looking to fill 115 positions

Posted: Friday, July 10, 2020

As Bowen Center continues a period of rapid growth, it is actively seeking to fill 115 jobs in northern and central Indiana. As the largest Community Mental Health Center in the state, the majority of the positions are for Skills Coaching.

“Skills Coaches and Skills Technicians (Case Managers) help patients live successful lives by providing training and support,” said Cheryl Shepherd, Bowen Center Director of Human Resources. “That may mean helping a child focus in the classroom or manage emotions, working in the community with a teen to help increase their self-esteem and social skills or helping adults at home with parenting skills, independent living skills and linking them to housing, employment, transportation and insurance options. They may even transport patients to appointments and help them implement plans to improve their physical health. In short, Skills Coaches help patients live their best lives,” said Shepherd.

Skills Coaches receive continuous in-depth, position-specific training when hired and are paired with mentors to help build on that training. Benefits include medical, dental and vision after 30 days of employment with generous vacation time, tuition reimbursement, university tuition discounts, recreation and entertainment discounts, an extraordinary student loan pay down plan, a supportive and caring company culture and much more.

Bowen Center is looking for compassionate individuals with either an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in any field of study, or 60+ college credit hours. Those without college experience need five years’ work experience in a direct mental health setting.

“We are fortunate to be able to offer a career path to individuals who have the passion for our type of work, those who really want to help others,” said Mary Gerard, Bowen Center Vice President of Human Resources. “The less restrictive educational requirements allow us to be more intentional about who we select for these positions. Then we invest in them and watch them change people’s lives,” said Gerard.

Currently, the entire application, interviewing, on-boarding and training process is done virtually. With more than 100 positions open at this time there are other positions open including for nurses. Visit to search all Bowen Center jobs by Indiana cities or counties.
