About the role
The Community Recovery Program (CRP) service, in conjunction with the North East Area Mental Health Service, provides 24/7 residential psychosocial rehabilitation for 22 clients with psychiatric disability. Recovery-focused support, treatment and care is provided to clients moving directly from the community or stepping down from a psychiatric in-patient unit, secure extended care unit or Forensicare. The CRP service enables individuals to achieve recovery outcomes by developing skills, enhancing social relationships, building community connections and collaborating with clinical mental health services, service providers, agencies, families and carers.
We are seeking a compassionate, self-motivated Community Mental Health Practitioner for a 6 month fixed term, full time opportunity to work alongside a caring team on a 24/7 rotating roster in the Heidelberg area. You will provide intensive person-centred, recovery-oriented supports to clients to achieve wellbeing goals, build daily living skills and capacity, strengthen social and community connections, develop support networks and live independently in the community.
