Each EBHT in support of a will consist of a core provider base of
one (1) psychiatrist/psychiatric nurse practitioner, three (3) clinical psychologists, three (3) Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), two (2) Social Service Assistants (SSA), one (1) case manager, one (1) Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or medical assistant and two (2) medical support assistants.
