By joining the Community Mental Health Team, you will have the opportunity to plan, implement and evaluate a comprehensive and integrated range of mental health services appropriate to the needs of consumers in the Eyre and Far North Local Health Network (EFNLHN). 

As a member of the multidisciplinary community team, including health professionals and service providers from other sectors, you will utilise a combination of preventative, early intervention, therapeutic/intervention and evaluation approaches including individual and family therapeutic approaches, group programs, health promotion and community development projects.  This will include working directly with consumers and their network and with the wider community to enhance recovery and self-determination in the least restrictive practice.  Working under reduced clinical direction, you may contribute to the clinical supervision of less experienced mental health professionals, assistants and students.
