Mental health service careers
Our Mental Health Services team provide direct services to Tasmanians, carers and families affected by severe mental health problems. We work with the non-Government sector, Tasmanian communities and the broader mental health sector.
Our mental health services are provided by three Area Management Units overseeing service delivery in the South, North, and North-West regions of Tasmania. The service is coordinated by a centralised state office in the South.
Mental health services teams
Our teams comprise psychiatrists, social workers, occupational therapists, mental health nurses and clinical psychologists. Services are provided through multi-disciplinary teams working in age-based specialist units:
