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.
The Wellbeing Coach will work within a multidisciplinary team to deliver a range of services to adults experiencing emotional distress, crises, mental ill health and/or addiction, and to their families, support people and carers, through a “no wrong door” approach. Of importance is the ability to be with people when they are distressed, the ability to listen compassionately and to support people to identify and act upon solutions that may improve their wellbeing. The Wellbeing Coach, as an integral member of the team, will also be expected to welcome people to the AMHC and provide intake and triage services.
Neami recognises that most of us have our own lived experience of mental ill-health or personal experience in supporting someone who has experienced mental health and/or AOD issues and as such possess a rich understanding of their experiences of mental health recovery.
As a Wellbeing Coach, you can purposefully use your own experience to help others further their own understanding of recovery. Neami also recognises the value of working within a Social and Emotional Wellbeing (SEWB) Framework and is committed to employing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as Wellbeing Coaches. The role involves; 7 day a week shift work, including morning, evening, and weekend shifts.
The terms and conditions of the role are listed in the attached position description, also attached below.
