INNER SOUTH COMMUNITY HEALTH SERVICE The Inner South Community Health Service Ltd. (ISCHS) is a multi-sited community health agency providing a comprehensive range of health and welfare services to the communities of Prahran, St Kilda, South Melbourne and Port Melbourne. Approximately 270 staff work in multidisciplinary teams to deliver programs and services across four key service locations: SouthPort (in Coventry Street, South Melbourne); Inkerman Street, St Kilda; Mitford Street, St Kilda and Malvern Road, Prahran. In addition other staff are located in and provide services in public housing high-rise estates. Inner South Community Health Service is committed to deliver innovative, responsive and targeted health services and to take a leadership role in advocacy, evaluation and policy development. We strive to ensure access and linkage to services for those in the community who may not readily access mainstream services and to make an impact on the health of marginalized people. For more information on our organisation please visit our website PRAHRAN MISSION Prahran Mission is a community service agency of The Uniting Church in Australia and is committed to social justice and to the well being of its clients. Our mission is to engage with those who have or have had a mental illness or experience extreme social and economic disadvantage in order to facilitate a full and meaningful life. We also promote social justice by the development of a more caring, more humane and more equitable society that integrates and meets the needs of all its members. Prahran Mission achieves this through the provision of services that are grounded in our values and by effecting beneficial social change that creates opportunities for meaningful participation in society. We work to address and change the attitudes, institutions and policies which create and perpetuate inequality. Inner South Community Health Service Page 3 of 11

4 Prahran Mission is an equal opportunity employer and upholds the value of its workers, both paid and unpaid and the principles of social justice in its workplace policies and practices. For more information on our organisation please visit our website 3 POSITION DETAILS Context People suffering severe and chronic mental illness experience multiple co-morbidities that dramatically impact on their capacity to live independently and safely within the community. Our existing service system is at times too fragmented to adequately assist highly complex people. Specialist expertise in primary care, mental health, alcohol and other drug, housing support, legal support or education and training is available through agencies within our region. But given the expertise is spread across multiple agencies, a coordinated response that would stabilise the consumer and establish a pathway to a safe and meaningful life in the community can be difficult to achieve. This model of care is underpinned by key principles articulated in policy directions that promote area based planning, community based care and integrated service delivery to ensure that consumers receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time and can be safely transitioned out of clinical bed based care systems sooner. Through support from the proposed combined model of care, we will build on existing interagency initiatives to establish efficient and effective mechanisms of providing a coordinated, enhanced, and person-centred approach to caring for Complex Care Need Consumers, to establish clear and accountable mechanisms to improve the safety, quality of life, and social participation of vulnerable consumers in our catchment. This program is funded through new initiatives arising from the report Because Mental Matters. A consortium of agencies are involved through the Inner South East Mental Health Alliance.
