“Full citizenship for all people living with a mental illness in Australian society”
Northern Melbourne PSS is funded by the North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network (NMPHN) as a response to the sectoral service gap for consumers with a psychosocial disability that were not eligible for the NDIS. The Federal government gave funding to PHN’s around the country to create and fund the National Psychosocial Support (NPS) measure to support people that would otherwise fall through the gap as they would not be eligible to receive support through NDIS. Several funding streams operate under the NPSS team including:
Community Rehabilitation and Support Workers (CRSWs) provide a range of rehabilitative supports to consumers, tailored to meet their individual needs. Neami National's work with consumers occurs within their own community of friends, family and neighbourhood. You will work closely with clinical case managers and other community partner organisations in order to deliver the best possible comprehensive service to consumers. You will provide regular 1:1 support to an allocated caseload, facilitate the completion of various assessment tools and develop and implement various recovery focused workshops and groups.
Peer Support Workers (PSW) are integral members of the team and draw on their lived experience of recovery from mental illness, to instil confidence and hope in others about the journey of recovery. You must have a lived experience of your own mental illness and a rich understanding of your own processes of recovery. You must be willing to purposefully use your own story to help staff and consumers further their own understanding of recovery. You will provide regular 1:1 support to an allocated caseload, facilitate the completion of various assessment tools and develop and implement various recovery focused workshops and groups.
Neami National is a community mental health service supporting people living with mental illness to improve their health, live independently and pursue a life based on their own strengths, values and goals.
