At EACH, our vision is for a healthy and inclusive community.
We provide a range of health, disability, counselling and mental health services across Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, ACT and Tasmania.
We recognise that not everyone experiences life equally, due to a range of factors including gender, socio-economic status, cultural background and education level.
Our focus therefore, is about creating opportunities for equitable outcomes. No matter what someone's starting place, we will support them to achieve their hopes and aspirations.
We embrace diversity in all its forms and respect everyone's strength and contributions irrespective of gender, ethnicity, culture, religious beliefs, sexual orientation and political views.
The role of the headspace School Psychologist is to provide psychological assessments and treatment, care planning and counselling to children and young people aged 5-17 going to Noble Park English Language School (P-10).

In addition, the role will facilitate access to appropriate services (including headspace centres Dandenong and Narre Warren and other community agencies) as indicated by assessment and care planning processes, and will include direct service to young people, families and carers as well as consultation and support to other professionals, agencies and members of the community engaged in the young person's care. The role will receive referrals from the Well-being Team at the school. The positions are co-located across both the Noble Park Campus and the Hampton Park Campus.
