Healthy Mind - Psychologist
About the Role
If you are a registered psychologist or clinical psychologist this is a unique opportunity.
At The Fono our mental health services (LagiOla) are located within our primary health service and are a key element of FonoCare – the integrated model of care.
- Registration (compliant with the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003)
- Understanding of the principles of working in a practice setting
- A deep understanding of Pacific culture and protocols and the ability to engage with individuals and family from a variety of backgrounds in New Zealand and the Pacific
I Am fortunate to work within our Lagi Ola team, a wellbeing service embedded within primary care at The Fono. Being able to provide care for our patients and their aiga has been both challenging yet rewarding because of the unique skills and experience each member brings to the team. It's rare that we get to use our Pacific values like respect, love and faith which creates a genuine relationship with our patients. A little humour is also a bonus! These are tools that help the team and myself work innovatively to better engage the people we aim to serve.
