About Us

Nema Health is a survivor and clinician-led virtual program for PTSD & trauma care. Our mission is to guide trauma survivors at every step of their journey towards healing, starting first with the remote, massed delivery of cognitive processing therapy (CPT). We are seeking a passionate and mission-driven Peer Navigator to provide best-in-class support to other survivors. Today, this role reports directly to our Clinical Director, with additional supervision by the Practice Coordinator, and will report to the Clinical Operations Director once that hire is made.

Nema is built around a “Peer-led model”, placing Peer Navigators at the heart of the patient experience and our clinical operations. We believe that survivors are best equipped to guide patients through their journey with empathy and compassion. To that end, Peer Navigators are essential members of two functions at Nema Health. In the Admissions function, Peer Navigators are responsible for managing inbound patient inquiries via phone call, email, and other forms of communication. The Peer Navigator will also provide program information, discuss insurance and finances, and ultimately work toward booking Intake Sessions with interested individuals. On the Care function, Peer Navigators support active patients on their journey to recovery through one-on-one and group telehealth sessions. Peers teach and support patients in implementing valuable skills into their lives, and help patients build a “life worth living” outside of trauma.
