Mental Health Clinical Intern - Port Lincoln

Neami National

“Full citizenship for all people living with mental health issues in Australian society”

The Clinical Care and Coordination role (Triple C) will provide care coordination for people experiencing the impact of severe and complex mental illness to plan services that matter to assist people in working towards recovery. Working with GP’s, psychiatrists, local health networks and others you will promote care plans, risk assessments and facilitate access to appropriate clinical and community services. You will also provide evidence-based therapies to individuals.

The Mental Health Clinical Intern position has been developed in recognition of the lack of Mental Health Accredited Social Workers in regional locations. The Mental Health Clinical Intern will deliver Triple C and be required to participate in the AASW process to become an accredited Mental Health Social Worker throughout the time of the internship. Costs associated with accreditation application, and clinical supervision will be met through Neami National. If accredited prior to the contract term, the position can be re-negotiated from an intern role.

Neami will provide a welcoming and supportive environment within an established team, professional development, and clinical supervision within an innovative, national Mental Health organisation. Neami is committed to supporting our staff (and mean it), prioritising positive culture, fostering learning, and a range of generous employment benefits.
