- Do you have a strong sense of social justice and want to make a difference in people's lives?
- Be an integral part of an innovative service for Hawke's Bay
The Hawke's Bay District Health Board Community Mental Health Service (CMH) provides a range of mental health and addictions services for the Hawke's Bay region.
Te Ara Manapou Pregnancy and Parenting Support (PPS) works with pregnant women and whānau of children under three years of age who have alcohol and drug issues and are poorly connected to health and social services.
Te Ara Manapou has a multi-disciplinary team working with a range of specialist services such as Mental Health, Lead Maternity Carers, Oranga Tamariki, and Non-Government Organisations. We work from a client-focused perspective to support whānau to reach their potential and in turn improve outcomes for children.
As one of our Registered Practitioners you will be an experienced practitioner and may have trained in AOD, nursing, social work, counselling, psychology, occupational therapy or related fields. You will be seeking an opportunity to work in a cohesive well-supported team and develop your AOD expertise specific to pregnant women, fathers, their children, and their whānau.
A sense of social justice and enjoying working with a vulnerable, challenging, and complex client group is essential. Excellent engagement and communication skills, a non-judgemental attitude and an ability to work autonomously within a team are vital.
Te Ara Manapou offers the opportunity to work with a small case-load of clients in an intensive strength-based approach. Knowledge and passion for working with complex families is a must as is resilience in your professional practice.
This position is Monday to Friday between 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
