About the Organisation and Service

Every day, Life Without Barriers provides support and care to children and young people, as we work collaboratively with families, carers, and communities, to ensure they have the environment they deserve to grow. With a focus on ensuring safety and respect, this is an opportunity to make a positive and meaningful difference in these young lives and help pave a brighter future.

The iConnect team sits firmly alongside our other youth and family mental health programs across the state as a whole service, and can proudly report we have a strong reputation in the sector as a highly skilled and effective youth and family mental health service provider for over 10 years, and our service provision is growing rapidly.

We provide a supportive environment, focussed on staff wellbeing with high team morale.  We are heavily focussed on investing in best practice service delivery and invest significantly in ongoing professional development.  The team is also located with other LWB services such as youth and family support services, foster care and disability services where shared collaboration is encouraged.

We want to employ people who reflect the diversity of our clients to ensure we can support each client's individual needs and wants. We encourage people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander background and people with disability to apply.

About the Role

Life Without Barriers' Youth and Family Mental Health Services are accredited under the National Mental Health Standards, and we are seeking an enthusiastic, engaging and experienced Mental Health Case Manager (Allied Health Professional) to join the iConnect youth and family mental health team. Case Managers work intensively 1-1 with young people and their families, to assist them to make significant improvements to their mental health, wellbeing and functioning and to walk alongside to help them achieve their goals.

The role works in partnership with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) in Northern Tasmania, where as a collaborative team, you will jointly work together to provide intensive support packages of care to young people, who are clients of CAMHS, with complex mental health issues.  You will collaborate closely within the iConnect teams, who are located in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie. 

As part of a highly skilled, supportive wrap around outreach mental health team, you will draw on a solid practitioner knowledge base (2-5 years post graduate experience in mental health).  You will, alongside the CAMHS clinical team, provide comprehensive care planning, risk assessment, and will deliver therapeutic 1-1 support and clinical case management through evidence based outcome oriented therapeutic modalities.  You will support young people and their families with complex mental health and functional challenges. 

The role is based in Launceston but you will also have the opportunity to work in the community and on an outreach basis in order to meet the needs of young people.

We are able to offer a relocation reimbursement to those considering the move to beautiful Hobart. Please reach out if you would like to know more about what is offered
