If you’re passionate about supporting people in their mental health recovery, Forensicare is where you need to be. You will be a part of a caring and supportive team, making a real difference to people living with the dual stigma of mental illness and offending.

Working across community, hospital and prison settings, you can learn, apply your specialist skills and advance in your profession. Together, we can contribute to a more connected, compassionate mental health and criminal justice system.

 Job location

Currently, Forensicare’s community services are based in metropolitan Melbourne and have limited ability to provide face-to-face services to people and service providers in regional areas. Our expansion into the Loddon Mallee region will contribute to a more connected, compassionate mental health and criminal justice system.

This role could be based in the Bendigo area or remote base with scheduled travel in the region in Victoria. You could also work at Forensicare’s Community Forensic Mental Health site at Clifton Hill.

About the Role:

Exciting opportunity to contribute to the setting up of the regional team at Loddon/Mallee for a progressive, enthusiastic, and energetic psychiatrist with known interest in service development, shared care working and developing long lasting working partnerships with our regional mental health services.

 The Consultant Psychiatrist will provide forensic mental health advice to multi-disciplinary teams to ensure the delivery of high-quality direct care services and programs.

 What you need:

  • Fellowship of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) or equivalent 
  •  This position is subject to a Police Check.

 You will work autonomously in this role and be supported by a network of health professionals across the regional hub. You can manage your time in a variety of work settings to complement your lifestyle whilst servicing the needs of the Loddon/Mallee region. This hub is part of the wider roll out of regional model of forensic mental health services throughout Victoria in response to the recommendations from the Royal Commission into Mental Health Reform Victoria.

 Relocation support will be available to eligible individuals via Regional Workforce Agency Victoria (RWAV).
