  • providing information to enable improved access to other services (such as general practice, other health specialists and associated clinical services, consumer or carer peer support, carer respite, the NDIS and other social welfare agencies) and

  • freeing up clinicians to focus on their therapeutic work.


The role will provide a pathway into mental health for newly registered health practitioners.



Your Contribution



  • Recently graduated health practitioner in nursing, social work or occupational therapy.

  • Demonstrated ability to work collaboratively and respectfully with young people & families.

  • Ability to work independently and as an effective member of a multidisciplinary team.
