My role as a Wellbeing worker at TeamHEALTH is honestly the most rewarding job I have had yet. I feel honoured that I get to work so close with participants as they trust me to help them in areas where they need support in their lives and daily living skills. My role does not feel like a 9-5 job more so a passion & an honour that I have the privilege of working with people from all walks of life’s. Watching participants reach goals & grow in their confidence is fulfilling. I am so grateful to work at TeamHEALTH & continue to support individuals in their everyday lives.
Tilly (Mental Health Recovery Worker), Darwin
We are a non-clinical setting that looks at supporting people in a holistic way, as poor mental health impacts every aspect of an individual’s life. We help to restore their belief in themselves and teach them basic life skills that they can use to support themselves. I find this work very rewarding and challenging. I hope that having people in the community will help to remove stigma that still exists around having a mental health illness. We have some individuals in our residential program who have been long-term participants, so we have been able to get to know them very well, going through their joys and sorrows. These individuals are often living with chronic mental health illness/issues, which poses a huge challenge for them. So it is a privilege to be able to help them in their ongoing battle with mental health. It is something I feel very passionate about, especially in providing such individuals with a clean and comfortable home that is welcoming to them. It’s about treating people with respect and dignity. It’s great to help people get their lives back on track, by giving them the tools and skills to improve and manage their mental health
Bridie (Mental Health Recovery Worker), Darwin
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.
