About Job Club

Job Club is a one-stop centre, supported employment service for individuals diagnosed with mental illness. Recovering from a mental illness is a journey where an individual regains back his or her place in the community. Restoration of the work identity is thereby a key goal at Job Club. The overall main service at Job Club is to assist individuals with mental illness to obtain and sustain open employment, or, providing support if the individual requires support at his or her current work.

Located at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH), Job Club is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of Occupational Therapists, Medical Social Workers, Case Managers and Job Placement Officers. We also work with together as a team with the other healthcare professionals within IMH including Psychiatrists and Psychologists.

For job matching purposes, Job Club welcomes and works with employers of different industries who are prepared to cater to the needs of individuals with mental illness. This is part of how supported employment is made possible. 

Job Club's core belief is that individuals with mental illness are able to be gainfully employed in society. It is our aim to empower recovery, restore identity and encourage hope in clients through work.  
 

Employment is nature’s best physician and is essential to human happiness.
