About Healing Advocacy Fund

After thousands of years of rich wisdom traditions, and many decades of pioneering work by researchers and activists to bring psychedelic healing back into mainstream society, 2023 will be a groundbreaking year for the psychedelics movement.

Starting in 2023, thanks to the successful passage of Oregon’s Measure 109 ballot campaign, Oregon will provide access to psilocybin services to folks with a wide set of backgrounds and use cases.  Anyone over the age of 21 will be able to experience psilocybin sessions with a facilitator in licensed centers.

In January 2021, the Healing Advocacy Fund (HAF) was formed with the mission of supporting a high quality implementation of Measure 109.  Over the last year and a half, we have partnered with policymakers, researchers, and a cross-disciplinary set of experts in psychedelic therapy to advocate for the implementation of a safe, high quality, accessible state-wide psilocybin services program.

In the next few years, we will see people from all over the world coming to Oregon to experience psychedelic therapy, with hundreds of facilitators trained and dozens of service centers launched.  Oregon has the potential to become a magnet for the delivery of care in trauma, end-of-life care, depression, substance use disorder, and anxiety; as well as a place where anyone can experience the extraordinary healing and insight of psychedelic medicines.

We are at the cusp of a new era of breakthrough mental health treatment and healing. Join our team to be part of the movement.

Position Overview

Healing Advocacy Fund is looking for a seasoned Program Director to launch and lead a few exciting new programs.  As our team grows and 2023 draws nearer, we are taking a comprehensive, systems-level approach to support the individual clinics, training schools, and facilitators who are building a new sector from the ground up.  We are preparing to launch several new initiatives under the umbrella The Center for Psychedelic Advancement: a learning collaborative for the directors of facilitator training schools, a learning collaborative for prospective service centers, and a potential fellowship program.

You’ll lead and own these programs, manage a diverse array of stakeholders, and keep the trains running on time.  You have two superpowers (and likely more): 1) taking a vision and transforming it into reality, and 2) group facilitation with a talent for building containers of trust and connection.  This is not your first rodeo - you’ve likely been a program director, operations director, group facilitator, senior project manager, or chief of staff before.  You know how to work in a small, fast-growing team where nimbleness and creative problem solving are key.  You’re practical, efficient, and great at creating thorough structures and plans.  You’re also great at listening closely to the members of the program to understand their emergent needs and priorities.

This role is full-time and remote and can be based anywhere in Oregon, with a small amount of travel within the state, and is open to US residents.  
 

Responsibilities

  • Serve as the program director and lead group facilitator for several programs involving a dozen to a few dozen participants.  Programs will meet somewhere between once a month to once a quarter, with a mix of in-person and remote sessions.
  • Lead the design and creation of each program, using a mix of best practices for producing programs and keen listening and discovery skills for the needs of each stakeholder type
  • Drive marketing, recruiting, and the application process for each program
  • Cultivate and manage a wide array of stakeholder relationships across the psychedelic-assisted therapy space in Oregon and nationally
  • Serve as the first line of contact for cohort members
  • As soon as appropriate, help hire a program manager to support you
  • Proactively work with the HAF team to create other events, experiences, or processes as needed

 

Skills, Qualifications, and Experience

Our ideal candidate will have all of the following characteristics:

  • At least 5+ years of experience as a program director, operations director, product manager, or chief of staff
  • Very strong project management skills
  • Experience as a group facilitator who can skillfully create containers that foster trust, presence, reflection, and connection
  • High emotional intelligence: self-awareness, feedback skills, listening skills, growth mindset, and the ability to collaboratively problem solve

Our ideal candidate may also have some of the following characteristics: 

  • Experience working in a small, fast-growing team environment
  • Growth mindset with a piercing curiosity and interest in creative problem solving
  • Experience leading teams and managing direct reports
  • Experience working in fully-remote teams
  • Ease with modern software such as Google Drive, Airtable, Calendly, and CRM systems
  • A background in or passion for psychedelic-assisted therapy, mental health, drug policy reform, systems change, or social impact
  • Strong relationships in Oregon in healthcare, policy, mental health, economic development, wellness, or psychedelic-assisted therapy

 

Salary range is $90,000 - $120,000 with benefits, commensurate with experience.
