The opportunity to make a difference, in our hospital and our community

Where you will be working

Known for our innovative consumer focused models of care which are designed for the rural and regional population we serve, our Mental Health teams provide critical services within acute, sub-acute and community settings throughout the Murrumbidgee Local Health District.

As a member of our team you will have the opportunity to work within talented multidisciplinary environments, have excellent support with ongoing development and access to key technologies connecting you with colleagues and consumers based throughout the District

Our multidisciplinary teams provide career paths for both nursing and allied health staff, new graduates and established professionals. We are committed to providing safe, effective, quality care through listening to consumers and continually exploring ways to do it better.

About the Opportunity

Suicide Prevention peer workers employed in the Safe Haven and SPOT services will provide recovery-oriented and trauma-informed peer support for people who present to the service. Drawing on lived experience, support may include psychosocial support, safety planning, recovery/wellness planning, individual or group peer support, advocacy, collaborative identification of community support, follow up and support to access other services. 
Peer workers may also be required to work from or liaise with emergency departments to ensure people in distress are successfully linked to the service and that emergency department staff have a high awareness of the service.
Peer workers will deliver support that aligns with the principles of step up/step down care. This includes making referrals to a range of community-based services for ongoing support if required (step down), or escalating concerns over consumer wellbeing to clinical staff/management within the Safe Haven and/or SPOT for follow up (step up).
The Safe Haven provides support to people who present to the service experiencing a suicidal crisis or suicidal thinking. It will provide an alternative to an emergency department presentation or to remaining in emergency unnecessarily. The Safe Haven service aims to promote a no wrong door approach.

To learn more and review all role responsibilities, please review the Position Description. Please note, your application must include a current resume and address all selection criteria.
