Senior Psychologist (General or Clinical)

Clarity Health Care (CHC), run by Clare Groves and Prof David Castle, is a community mental health service providing holistic care which is tailored to suit the needs of individual patients with a range of mental health concerns. We provide evidence based care through multiple modalities including outreach services, office suite appointments, telehealth and group therapy programs which are outcomes focused and client centred.

We are currently looking for experienced psychologists (4 or 5 days per week) to deliver evidence-based care to clients in the community. This role will be an interesting mix of clinic based appointments, outreach and telehealth, with flexible hours and freedom to be creative in how you see clients depending on their clinical needs. It is a well remunerated role with Clarity holding contracts with multiple business partners in addition to traditional Medicare funding. Clarity offers all care, from stabilisation through to long-term therapeutic engagements. Our funding offers clients and clinicians flexibility and a cutting edge model of care to keep people stable within their communities for a sustainable recovery.

In the past 3-4 years, Clarity have pioneered hospital substitution programs which is an assertive community care model with this model being proven to reduce hospitalisation for clients by over 90%. This was a national pilot program which Clarity has now converted to an ongoing service for clients.

Clarity staff work collaboratively within a multi-disciplinary team of psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists, social workers and registered nurses; in addition to working closely with external care providers (private psychiatrists, GP's, family members and other health care practitioners) to understand the diagnosis, current issues and to formulate a client-centred and effective treatment plan. This will be under the guidance and support of the director of CHC, Clare Groves and Head Consultant Psychiatrist, Prof David Castle. Clinicians have access to senior staff for supervision and mentorship and professional development is offered throughout the year.

We have a preference to candidates who have area mental health experience, but are hiring for “fit”, so this is not an absolute requirement.
