Mental Health Clinicians - Brimbank Melton Infant, Child and Family Health and Wellbeing Hub


The Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System’s final report was released in March 2021. It set out a blueprint for a future mental health and wellbeing system in Victoria to be achieved through a series of structural, cultural and clinical reforms to be implemented over ten years. Recommendation of the Final Report is to establish three Infant, Child and Family Health and Wellbeing Hubs, as the first Local Mental Health and Wellbeing Services for infants and children aged 0-11 and their families. One of these first three hubs will be located in Brimbank Melton and the RCH Mental Health Service has been chosen to provide the mental health component of the hub.  The hubs fully integrate paediatrics, mental health and family services under the one roof so that families can receive the services they need in the one place.


These are new Grade 2 ongoing, full-time positions for the first wave of mental health clinicians to work alongside a Team Coordinator to stand up the Brimbank Melton hub for the first time. The hub is proposed to open in July 2022, with activity to gradually build over time.


This is an exciting opportunity to be one of the first clinicians to work in the hub and see families for the first time. As well as immediately working directly with families, these positions would also initially assist the Team Coordinator to develop a model of care for the hub, including through codesign with people with a lived experience.  The full team of clinicians to operate the hub will be recruited within the first six months, building a leading multi-disciplinary team to provide excellence care to infants and children aged 0-11 years.


The positions are available to commence immediately and are ongoing, full time (part time also considered). The RCH Mental Health Service has a significant learning and development program and invests in supporting our staff to pursue their professional practice, carers and passions.
