Health & wellbeing services
Helping jobseekers manage their mental health and wellbeing so they can move toward their employment goals.
Are you feeling overwhelmed finding a job or managing workplace stress? Our Health and Wellbeing Services team is here to support you to better manage and care for yourself during this challenging time. We do this by providing an employment first approach and help you realise your potential.
How to access
Starting a new job can be difficult, but even more so when you have an emotional, mental or physical health challenge. We also know that finding and keeping work can be equally difficult if you have not been in the workforce for a while or experienced continued rejections.
If you are a ‘jobactive’ or ‘Disability Employment Services’ participant, you may be eligible for our services. Speak with your Help Employment Coach about the type of service you would like to engage in and they will check your eligibility. If you are eligible, they will then organise a referral to our team.
We offer a range of health and wellbeing services tailored to meet different needs:
Help to find a job
Mental health counselling: support to better manage your mental health so you can find a job.
Career counselling: support to identify the right job for you.
