This qualification reflects the role of workers who provide self-directed recovery oriented support for people affected by mental illness and psychiatric disability.
Work involves implementing community based programs and activities focusing on mental health, mental illness and psychiatric disability. Work is undertaken in a range of community contexts such as community based non-government organisations; home based outreach; centre-based programs; respite care; residential services, rehabilitation programs; clinical settings; or supporting people in employment. Work is carried out autonomously under the broad guidance of other practitioners and professionals.
The welfare and community services sector is one of Australia’s fastest growing sectors, and is expected to continue growing.
There are forecast to be around 6,000 new job openings per year until 2023, a growth of 17.5%.
