headspace Canberra is part of headspace Services Ltd. headspace Canberra is an early intervention program for young people aged 12 – 25 years with emerging mental health and/or substance use problems. headspace Canberra provides young people with access to Allied Health professionals and the support they need to develop and maintain the skills and confidence they need to live healthy and happy lives.
As part of our continued growth we are seeking professionally accredited Psychologists, Accredited Mental Health Social Workers or Occupational Therapists.
headspace is seeking a person who has demonstrated clinical skills, working with young people together with experience in working with multi-disciplinary teams. You will also possess significant experience in a range of mental health service settings; including the provision of mental health services to young people aged 12-25. Naturally, you will possess exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, along with strong information technology and information management skills and a high level of self-motivation and initiative.
In return we offer a flexible and dynamic environment where you have the opportunity to truly make a difference to young Australians. As a Private Practitioner, you will essentially be running your own small business, with income from rebates from Medicare and some direct billings.
Practitioners will be engaged as independent contractors, not as employees, and will be remunerated by rebates received through the Medicare Benefits Schedule. Rebate levels will be dependent on the Practitioners professional qualifications. Therefore to be considered for these opportunities you must be eligible for a Medicare Provider Number.
