Request for Proposal: To provide youth and young adult Mental Health Consultant Services

OVERVIEW

Rocky Mountain Youth Corps (RMYC) is accepting proposals to engage a Mental Health Professional to

support our seasonal and year-round staff during our program season.

TIMELINE

This work will take place from May 13th, 2024 through October 11th, 2024 and will primarily be via

digital mediums.

CONSULTANT PROPOSAL

RMYC recognizes the need for mental health support within our programming and acknowledges that we

are not the experts in this field. The Contractor outcomes will be very much driven by the expertise of

the MHC. The MHC will provide services primarily to RMYC’s seasonal Crew Leaders, Field Coordinators

and Senior Staff members. A total of around 40-50 people. The consultant will provide non-therapeutic

advising to field and office leadership throughout the field season.

Potential Deliverables:

● RMYC engages over 900 youth and young adults in our seasonal programming and we are looking

to provide support and guidance to our field and staff leadership when situations exceed their

confidence in addressing.

● RMYC is looking for a MHC that can organize and facilitate appropriate training for RMYC staff and

seasonal leadership.

● Review RMYC Medical Form language as it pertains to Mental Health and guide staff on how to

navigate conversations with potential employees who voluntarily disclose conditions that are

above our staff’s level of experience.

Consulting and coaching services will be conducted in direct partnership with RMYC Program and HR

Directors.
