There is an exciting opportunity for Aboriginal Peer Workers to be employed in new suicide preventions services in Tweed Heads and Lismore.
A Peer Worker for these services is someone who has had direct experience of feeling suicidal, and has recovered.
A Peer Worker uses their own experience to help others.
The Alternatives to the Emergency Department, or Safe Haven service, is a place where people who are experiencing suicidal thoughts can go to feel safe and supported, rather than having to go to the Emergency Department. The Safe Haven is open part time. It is a non-clinical service that provides support from people who themselves have experienced suicidality, and have now recovered.
Please see the links from Seek below and the position descriptions attached.
The Suicide Prevention Outreach Team is based in Tweed Heads and provides a combination of clinical and non-clinical services to people experiencing a suicidal crisis.
Please see the link below and the attached position description.
Applications close 15 February.
If people need a little longer to get their applications in, please contact Mim Weber.
Please feel free to call Mim Weber to discuss further (see phone number and email address below).
Please pass on to your networks and encourage people to apply.
