Mental Health Employment Services
Is your mental health a barrier to finding work?
Is employment a priority on your journey to recovery?
We understand how important it is to regain employment and stay connected to the community after experiencing mental health.
IMPACT's Personal Helpers & Mentors (PHaMs) Specialist Employment Service provides support for people with a mental illness who are receiving a Disability Support Pension or any other Centrelink payments.
By working closely with our Disability Employment Services (DES) and Job Services Australia (JSA) teams, we ensure you'll get the best support you need to undertake any training and seek suitable employment.
If you, or someone you know, experiences mental health and needs assistance to find employment, please contact IMPACT today.

When do I start work?
When you are ready. We are able to support you until you feel ready to start work and will be with you throughout your journey back into work.
Are you going to get me a job?
Yes, but you need to want to work. We will work with you to find a job you like and will be by your side to help you recover and move towards your employment goals.
Is the service voluntary?
Yes, so you have nothing to lose, and we believe once you've met with one of our support workers, and see how we can help, that you will be looking forward to working with us.
How are you different to the other services in town?
If you want a job, but are still on your recovery, we want to help you. And once you have employment we help you maintain the position with added assistance.
The Personal Helpers & Mentors (PHaMs) Specialist Employment Service is an Australian Government initiative.
