Mental Health Support Worker – Connecting2Community (C2C) Grampians Community Health


About the position

Connecting2community (C2C) is a co-designed model of psychosocial support delivered by peer workers supported by and connected to an established multidisciplinary team of mental health clinicians. The clients of Connecting2community may include some forensic clients but most will be from the broader community.

The C2C enables clients to identify goals and their assigned peer worker can link the client to relevant services and activities in the community, including neighbourhood centres. These goals may relate to: social skills and friendships, managing daily living, budgeting skills, finding or maintaining a home, volunteering, education, physical health and building confidence and resilience. The model provides a time-limited intervention and is underpinned by the promotion of recovery and client choice and control. Eligible clients are adults with mental illness who are not eligible for the NDIS or are waiting for an access decision and their NDIS plan to begin.

The service aims to:
• provide a comprehensive range of evidence informed psychosocial interventions that reduce the impact of mental illness and support improved functioning and contributing lives.
• optimise the delivery, coordination, and integration of psychosocial services within the existing treatment and support service systems; and
• deliver contemporary person-centred outcome focused services.
