Wellways has a number of programs providing services within the South West Sydney region, New South Wales Region consisting Mental Health Rehabilitation & Recovery Services, Psychological and Peer-Worker Services, Consumer Directed Services and a range of Peer Facilitated Education Programs.
This role will be supporting individuals across three programs; the Housing and Accommodation Support Initiative, Consumer Directed Services and Carer Gateway Services. These programs are designed to work with participants who are living with mental health concerns and/or illness to address key areas of support needs so they can maintain successful tenancies and participate in their communities. This support often results in improvements in their quality of life and, most importantly, assists in their recovery from mental illness. Key outcomes will be supporting the participant to identify needs, link with appropriate services, nurture natural supports that sustain recovery and assist in the development of self-management skills.
Using Wellways' Community Recovery Model and Intentional Peer Support, the Recovery and Rehabilitation will provide intensive support to people with a mental illness through the Housing and Accommodation Support Initiative.
