“We support individuals living with mental health challenges to achieve outcomes they value.”
We’re big believers in everyone having the opportunity to live a full life – and we give our all to support people to achieve the wellbeing and mental health outcomes that matter to them.
For some people this means having a stronger sense of self. For others, it might mean nurturing relationships, and for others, it could be building the confidence to tackle tomorrow. Everyone has different goals for their own life, and at Neami, we walk alongside people to help improve their quality of life, on their terms.
We are proud to support 32,000 people living with mental health challenges across Australia and offer more than 70 services, over 49 different Indigenous lands, across the nation. These include mental health and wellbeing supports, housing and suicide prevention services.
As Aboriginal Health Practitioner, you will bring Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander knowledge and cultural skills, coupled with primary health care skills to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults with Mental Health and/or Social and Emotional Wellbeing issues are supported within the centre.
You will contribute to the development and delivery of culturally safe distress support within the centre and assessment and referral to appropriate follow up care either within or outside of the centre. This includes the development of care plans involving individuals, families and community, clinical pathways and clear referral pathways and processes.
You will provide a range of effective therapeutic interventions using established evidence-based techniques and methodologies and will deliver culturally adapted, evidence-based interventions to promote strong social and emotional wellbeing and prevent the escalation of common mental and behavioural disorders (including alcohol and drug use disorders).
