At Marist180 we are committed to a therapeutic framework that recognises the impact of trauma on individuals, and offers recovery oriented, client needs driven and strengths based approaches to meeting outcomes. Trauma is a focus for our service delivery through everyday supports which are closely interlinked with internal mental health collaboration. Trauma is recognised as presenting in multiple ways dependent on individual responses to singular events, long term chronic exposure and complex trauma neuro-sequential developmental impacts. Our multi-linguistic mental health practitioners are highly qualified and experienced with children, youth and adults who have developmental concerns, trauma histories and work on approaching needs through fostering independence. An example of this are in the proactive work done with team consultations (case workers, direct support staff and community networks of support), supported by Support and Safety plans that guide intervention, and direct engagement where there may be barriers to external service linkages. Specific clinical advice is then applied in the supports of individuals in the context of the specific need.The internal Allied Health Team is complimented by services offered through 180Wellbeing Solutions, who offer Medicare and fee for service individual and group counselling, tailored training for capacity building alongside assessments and report writing services.
