Beyond Blue’s vision is that all people in Australia achieve their best possible mental health. Our mission is to work with the community to improve mental health and prevent suicide. We aim to achieve this by:
Beyond Blue’s values are Collaboration, Respect, Enthusiasm, Excellence, Innovation and Integrity.
The Services and Supports Group at Beyond Blue delivers effective early intervention, treatment and recovery-focused mental health and suicide prevention supports and services, so people can receive help early and recover quickly to ensure their best possible mental health.
The Way Back Support Service provides non-clinical, personalised, assertive aftercare and psychosocial support in the community for people up to three months following their discharge from hospital after a suicide attempt or suicidal crisis. The Way Back Support Service aims to contribute to a reduction in the rate, severity, and duration of a person’s suicidality and ultimately to the prevention of death by suicide.
Beyond Blue provides national support and oversees the implementation and ongoing operations of The Way Back Support Service in Primary Health Network regions across Australia. By June 2022, there will be up to 38 funded sites nationally.
The Way Back Support Service Adviser will play a critical role supporting and advising Primary Health Networks, service providers, hospitals, and sector partners to deliver The Way Back Support Service with an aim of reducing suicidal behaviour. In this role, you will be part of a team that enables our commissioners and service providers to deliver non-clinical, psychosocial support and follow-up care for up to three months, to assist people who have attempted suicide or experience a suicidal crisis.
Tertiary qualified with a bachelor’s degree in mental health or suicide prevention or equivalent work experience in mental health and suicide prevention services or projects and experience working in a project management or coordination environment will be considered.
Your knowledge of project management principles, practices and data management will be underpinned by your strong stakeholder engagement, contract management and process improvement skills.
This is a terrific opportunity to work within an organisation that is in a growth phase and be part of shaping the future outcomes for the community.
