Compassionate and supportive qualified mental health worker with an ability to relate to clients and their families to facilitate a collaborative environment that fosters opportunities for independence and social acceptance. I have three years of experience providing recovery-focused initiatives for clients seeking housing and accommodation and who are also diagnosed with a mental health condition. I am now seeking a rewarding role in mental health work where I can contribute my knowledge, skills and personal attributes in working with clients to promote mental health recovery within the community setting.
Ability to deliver high quality care
I have a proven ability to provide high standard quality of care that is in line with current evidence-based models of practice and national practice standards. My commitment to continuing professional development, combined with my career experience and qualifications, allows me to confidently and capably develop innovative and responsive health services to meet my clients’ needs. In my current role as Mental Health Outreach Worker I use a recovery-oriented model of service and client participation as an important part of the program activities. I consistently evaluate interventions and initiatives using outcome measures and adjust my program depending on changes to my clients’ health, environment and circumstances.
Strong interpersonal, communication and organisational skills
In my current role I develop and maintain strong relationships with a local network of agencies to provide clients with access to the widest range of services available. Internally, I also work within a multidisciplinary team including psychiatrists, nurses and occupational therapists to meet the complex needs of clients. My ability to understand my clients’ needs and work with a broad range of professionals from many different sectors has been key to my success in assisting clients to maximise their personal recovery and capacity to manage their own lives.
Sunnydale Community Health Service is a major provider of health and community services in the region with services spanning allied health, drug and alcohol, mental health, casework, family violence, and sexual and reproductive health. My role as outreach worker is to provide support, information, referral and assistance to people who are experiencing difficulties with their mental health and who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless.
The Riversdale Mental Health Services Department offers a comprehensive range of medical and psychiatric services. My role as social worker within the department was responsible for working with clients once discharged as outpatients, to assist them with engaging in social activities, facilitate patient and family/carer support initiatives, and support ongoing recovery.
