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.
Employment for Counsellors is expected to grow by 14.2% to 27,800 persons employed by 2026.
Employment in Health Care and Social Assistance is projected to grow by 301,000 (or 15.8%) over the five years to November 2026.
