Roseberry QLD invites you to become a driving force in our mission to empower the Youth of Gladstone. As a Senior Youth Mental Health Clinician at Roseberry QLD, you will play a pivotal role in our clinical services division, and across the organisation, providing clinical oversight, supervision and direct service delivery across both the Youth Enhanced Support Service (YESS) and headspace Gladstone (hG).

This includes brief and early intervention for mild to moderate mental health difficulties at headspace; to ongoing therapeutic support and clinical care coordination for young people who have, or are at risk of developing severe mental illness, and with complex needs (including self-harm and suicide risk), with the YESS program.
