Bilingual Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner (MA / Part-Time / Remote)



Posted on Saturday, May 18, 2024

Join Cartwheel to help tackle the student mental health crisis.

Kids spend most of their days in the classroom. And teachers and staff, who play a vital role in their development, are often the first to notice when something is off. But with 1 in 5 young people struggling with mental health, schools are getting crushed by a downward spiral in student crises and staff burnout.

With large increases in federal funding for schools and the rise of telehealth, schools are reimagining what mental health support can look like.

Cartwheel is an early-stage startup building technology-enabled mental health services that put schools at the center. We see our role as supporting on-campus counselors, psychologists, and school social workers who see kids every day. Instead of going around them, we collaborate with them. This means:

  • Earlier intervention
  • Higher student and family engagement in care
  • Better coordination among the trusted adults in a student’s life

Kids shouldn't just aspire to get out of bed and drag themselves to class. They should be able to experience joy. They deserve to envision and build a life they’re excited to live. If you join Cartwheel, you’ll help make this vision a reality for millions of students across the country. We’re backed by top investors including Menlo Ventures, Reach Capital, and General Catalyst, and we're looking for mission-driven teammates to join our team.


We’re looking for team-oriented and mission-driven clinicians to join our care team of psychopharmacologists, therapists, and school health professionals. As a Bilingual Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, you'll work directly with school staff, students, and families in our partner school districts to build stronger systems of mental health support.
