About Monash Health

Monash Health is an impressive organisation of seven public hospitals, 21 community health sites, five aged care facilities, university affiliated international research and tertiary education. We provide healthcare for the entire lifespan from pre-birth to palliative care and all stages in between, and we have recently opened the new 230-bed Monash Children’s Hospital.

About Us

The Intensive Support Service renamed KEYS: "Keep embracing your success" is a pilot project funded by the Victorian Department of Health and Human services.  The Intensive Support Service is comprised of a collaboration between the DHHS, two community agencies as partners and Monash Health. The Out of Home Care Intensive Support Service is an innovative 18-month collaborative initiative, between non-government community agencies, Monash Health and the Department of Health and Human Services, for young people in the 13-16 age range presenting with serious emotional and mental health disturbance, and related problem behaviours.  These young people may already be in Out of Home Care, or are at risk of breakdown in their family based care.

About the Role

The mental health clinicians will be responsible for providing therapeutic treatment to both the young people residing in the Out of Home Care site and those that are transitioning, or have transitioned into the community for a period of time deemed therapeutically necessary. These specialist clinical roles will provide a holistic assessment and therapeutic approach drawing upon current evidence based mental health and systemically oriented interventions that flexibly use elements from a range of therapeutic treatment models.

This role will suit you if you enjoy working in a partnership framework with other agencies.  The role will require you to provide high quality provision of ELMHS interventions, primary, secondary, tertiary consultation in addition to high quality provision of therapeutic support to the ‘system’ around the young person in a collaborative and reflective partnership with other involved agencies. 

We have an outstanding opportunity for one 0.8 senior mental health clinician who has appropriate qualifications in social work, occupational therapy, speech pathology, psychology, mental health nursing in addition to qualifications in family therapy to join the intensive support service. You will work closely with our partner agencies and with the consultant psychiatrist for  KEYS.

This role is graded at Grade 3 Psychology (PL4), Social Work (YC49), Occupational Therapy (YB27), Speech Pathology (YB54) and Grade 4 Nursing level (NP50).  If you are seeking further information please contact Ann Pratt, Senior Clinician Coordinator IMOS/KEYS on 9767 8274 or 0414 324 084.
