Mental Health Clinician – Murray Mallee GP Network
Multiple Positions Available
This opportunity is suited to a mental health clinician who is passionate about providing clinical services in collaboration with general practice and other mental health providers, to enhance the health and mental health outcomes of people with mental health disorders living in the community. Due to the requirement for regular travel to outlying communities, this is a unique opportunity to explore the Murray Mallee region through varied practice locations.
Services target the most disadvantaged populations in the Murray Mallee, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, women in the perinatal period, children, women suffering trauma from domestic violence, people experiencing suicidal thoughts; and those who are socially disadvantaged and unable to access mental health services in rural and remote communities.
Both applicants with experience, and those who require supervision will be considered and are encouraged to apply.
The successful applicants may be eligible for a Rural Relocation Support Package through the Rural Doctors Workforce Agency.
The Murray Mallee General Practice Network is a not for profit, membership based organisation, who boasts an experienced team, and offers a strong commitment to professional development, excellent salary packaging options, and flexible workplace arrangements. It provides a supportive and collaborative environment for employees which enables the delivery of local health solutions that address gaps in health service provision for people who may have difficulty accessing primary care services.
Both the primary location of this position and the base for the Murray Mallee General Practice Network are located in the region’s major population centre, the rural city of Murray Bridge. The region includes an area of 23,000 square kilometres from the eastern Adelaide Hills through to the Victorian border. The Sturt Highway and rail route from Adelaide to Melbourne pass through the region. The River Murray, Coorong and Murray Mallee areas are significant environmental features.
