We have been supporting people living with the day-to-day impacts of mental illness, as well as their families, friends and carers for over 40 years.

About the role
The Saint James Transitional Care Unit (TCU) residential service, delivered in partnership with East Metro Health Service network, supports clients aged between 18-64 years up to 6 months to transition from a hospital setting back into the community or to prevent admissions whilst residing in the community. TCU offers recovery-focused, person-centred supports delivered by specialised mental health clinicians and peer workers which is a shift from treating symptoms to coaching people to develop a life with meaning and purpose. Clients are supported to achieve their recovery goals, build daily living skills, develop strong links with support networks, strengthen relationships with families and carers, enable work or education and grow capacity to live independently.
We are seeking compassionate, self-motivated Peer Practitioners for casual opportunities to work alongside a caring team in the Victoria Park area. You will utilise your lived experience of mental ill health and recovery to provide empathetic, person-centred supports to clients to achieve their wellbeing goals, build life skills and confidence, strengthen social and community connections, and live independently in the community.
