About Us

Doveton CCU provides community residential psychosocial rehabilitation to consumers (18 -64 years old) who have a serious mental illness and associated psychosocial impairments. Doveton CCU provides a home-like environment where consumers can continue their recovery from mental illness and develop their skills and capacity for independent living in order to facilitate a transition to the community. Doveton CCU offers an initial four week residential assessment that may be followed by a medium-term psychosocial rehabilitation program based on individual needs. Referral sources predominantly include Monash Health community mental health teams (CCTs and MSTTs), adult acute inpatient psychiatric units, and the secure extended care unit (SECU). 

About the Role

The psychologist in the service works with a multi-disciplinary team to provide individualised programs of treatment, support and psychosocial rehabilitation to consumers. The psychologist is responsible for providing evidenced-based, best practice psychological assessment and intervention to promote engagement, improved wellbeing and safety, and enhanced psychosocial functioning. Psycho-education and psychological interventions may be provided on an individual and/or group basis. Ongoing, regular psychology supervision, involvement in IRS continuing professional development events and other development opportunities form part of this exciting role.

We do also have a resident dog, so you must be comfortable around dogs, as she is free to roam around the site.
