The Redcliffe Area Youth Space (RAYS) is seeking a passionate and committed mental health professional (Registered Psychologist, Mental Health Social Worker, Mental Health Nurse, Occupational Therapist). We are hoping to meet innovative professionals from a variety of relevant disciplines to join a team delivering clinical mental health services for young people aged 12-25. Applicants must demonstrate a willingness to proactively engage disengaged young people with a severe mental illness, or young people who may be at risk of a severe mental illness. This role will require some work out of business hours, home visits and a strong focus and understanding of psychosocial support and community participation outcomes. This program is a two-worker model, and actively partners clinicians with functional recovery workers to ensure a holistic service.
This position is to deliver an outreach based, clinical mental health program for young people aged 12 -25 years. The position will work closely with a number of Functional Recovery Youth Worker roles. The program design prioritises youth engagement and relationship building as the means of achieving clinical outcomes; as such, a flexible approach to service delivery will be expected with workers typically undertaking home visits and/or sessions in other places in the community such as the courthouse, schools, cafes or parks. While it is clinical in nature, it will have a strong focus on social inclusion/community participation outcomes to maintain recovery and prevent relapse. Clinical workers will be expected to actively participate in care coordination meetings, and in regular multidisciplinary team case reviews. Some group work will also be required.
The position is available for the duration of the funding. Pay scale $79,000 - $89,000 + super + salary packaging to the value of $15,900 pa.
