Mind Australia is one of the country’s leading community-managed specialist mental health service providers with a range of residential, mobile outreach, centre based and online services. We have been supporting people living with the day-to-day impacts of mental illness, as well as their families, friends and carers for over 40 years.
We provide practical and motivational support that helps people to develop the skills they need to move on, thrive and improve the quality of their lives. It’s an approach to mental health and wellbeing that looks at the whole person in the context of their daily life. Mind is committed to diversity and social inclusion.
The Way Back Support Service (WBSS) is a non-clinical support service focused on providing practical psychosocial support to people experiencing a suicidal crisis or who have attempted suicide. The service supports ‘at risk’ clients to stay safe, build capacity to self-manage distress, improve mental wellbeing, and promotes links with support networks as well as clinical and community services to meet needs.
We are seeking a resilient, compassionate Community Mental Health Practitioner for a 12 month fixed term, part time (23 hours per week) opportunity to work within a close knit team in the Bendigo area. You will be responsible for providing recovery-orientated outreach services, non-clinical care and psychosocial support to clients following a suicide attempt or suicidal crisis to ultimately reduce the risk of reattempts.
