Our Team

Our team are not always in the same location, working the same hours and days and we are definitely not the same people with the same interests. What is essential is that we all share one goal, we are passionate about helping people and work hard to achieve it as a team.

I am passionate about helping people getting back on their feet. For example, helping them set goals, and then seeing them achieve the goals they have set. Seeing them improve in their living skills, such as cooking, self-hygiene, attending appointments and self-medicate.

Adam (Psychosocial Rehabilitation Worker), Darwin

Kasee, Psychosocial Rehabilitation Worker

I am really passionate about helping strengthen families, helping children and their parents/caregivers achieve their goals, whether it be developmental milestones or goals they have identified themselves. I think it’s awesome when a child finally achieves something they have been working towards for a while and seeing the bond strengthen between child and their parent/caregiver. Our team is very respectful, kind and considerate.

Natasha (Child and Family Wellbeing Worker), Katherine

Heather, Aged Care Support Worker

I do not see my job as an everyday task but as a passion. I love empowering people to re connect with themselves and to see them make changes to their life that they never thought was possible.  To be able to listen and follow a client's personal journey through grief, trauma or unexpected changes in their life and walk next to them in their transformation and growth, is to me the reason I go to work every day. I am allowed to follow my passion to support people that have disconnected, listen to their story and see when some of their dreams become reality. Our team work closely with each other, share ideas, respect each other’s opinion, address issues, communicate openly, include and involve all members in any arising issues. We laugh together, we cry together but most importantly we are there for each other.

Christel (Child and Family Wellbeing Worker), Palmerston

Catherine and Marshall - Coordinator & Psychosocial Rehabilitation Worker

I am passionate about making a difference in the Carers life’s that I provide one on one support to. In my job role, Carers are in the centre of our care, this can look like taking a Carer for a coffee to debrief/off load any concerns or worries that they may be going through and for them to feel better so that they can continue in their caring role. I coordinate the Carers program with educational and social activities to provide a range of supports to assist Carers to continue to provide care and improve their own health and wellbeing. My team are supportive and easy to have a laugh with when times get a bit stressed and I need extra assistance. TeamHEALTH gives staff the opportunity to have a good work/life balance.
