Established in 2006, headspace is a well-recognised, national not-for-profit organisation making a difference to the lives of young people aged 12-25 years. headspace enables young people and their families to access information and support through a national network of centres and services, and drives community awareness and education about youth mental health, early intervention and help seeking.

An exciting opportunity exists for an experienced mental health professional to join our clinical practice team. This role will involve the support, development, refinement and delivery of headspace education programs. Highly proficient in mental health issues faced by young people, the Clinical Advisor will facilitate evidence-based and integrated health care with the goal of improving outcomes for young people and their families.

With a focus on continuous improvement, you will work to ensure that all headspace services are evidence-based, underpinned by robust quality and safety principles, with the ultimate goal of improving outcomes for young people and their families. The Clinical Advisor will provide a clinical lens to the development and refinement of headspace clinical programs, including actively contributing to strategic communications, national strategies, national policies and clinical resources.

To be successful in this role, you will hold a tertiary qualification in a relevant health discipline with a minimum of 5 years’ experience in the application of clinical practice, specifically in supporting young people experiencing mental ill health and their families. You will have demonstrated skills in assessment, case formulation and associated interventions. An understanding of early intervention principles and how they apply in different settings (primary and tertiary) would be helpful. Naturally, you will display highly developed interpersonal and communication skills, along with the ability to maintain productive working relationships with a range of stakeholders including key government, non-government and community partners.

In return we offer a flexible and dynamic environment where you have the opportunity to truly make a difference to young Australians. Remuneration is dependent on skills and experience, and includes generous salary packaging opportunities. This role is offered as a part time (0.6 FTE) position until 30 June 2020, in line with our funding terms.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are strongly encouraged to apply.
