Our team of Social workers are trained professionals who build relationships with people who access our services and find solutions and support that are tailored to the individual.
We can consider all aspects of a person’s situation, including their strengths and capacities, as well as the areas where they need help.
Our solutions, supports and pathways make sense in the context of the person’s environment, preferences and abilities.
Mind provides two types of social work support:
- Social Worker / Accredited Social Worker: These are trained professionals that can help you to work through challenges in your life, they can provide counselling and assist you to work towards your personalised recovery goals. They can help also help you navigate and access information, advice and support services
- Accredited Mental Health Social Workers (AMHSW) are social workers that have undertaken additional training and have specific experience supporting people with mental health challenges. AMHSWs are qualified to provide clinical assessment and to deliver Focused Psychological Therapies similar to Psychologists. They are also able to register to provide Medicare services. Our Accredited Mental Health Social Workers will work with you to identify the best therapeutic approach for you, this may include therapies such as:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

All our work is underpinned by trauma informed and recovery-oriented practice. Our social workers are also trained in a range of clinical and functional assessments.
