About Psychology & Specialist Services

Psychology and Specialist Services at Monash Health offers regular professional supervision, peer support, and the opportunity for career development to all of our 180 psychologists. We established Australia's first Psychology Registrar and Graduate Education Program to support our early career psychologists and to support senior psychologists to maintain PsyBA supervisor status.

About The Role

Monash Health Mental Health program has strengthened our front end services. This increased capacity means shorter wait times to access treatment for people seeking help, continuity of care and improved therapeutic effectiveness

By partnering with our triage and emergency points of contact, aPM offers people access to personalised therapeutic interventions at the time that they are seeking help

Our clients have a range of backgrounds, presenting issues and therapy goals and you will need to employ a flexible therapeutic approach to obtain maximum benefit for each client.
