Collaborative Neami service featured in the latest issue of newparadigm

An article co-authored by a Neami staff member has featured in a quarterly mental health publication.


Neami‘s Scott Nelson has co-authored an article in the latest issue of newparadigm based on his experience as the Intensive Mental Health Outreach Support Worker at the Neighbourhood Justice Centre (NJC) in Collingwood, Victoria.

Entitled “Client Services Team approach to case management: integrated service delivery at the Neighbourhood Justice Centre”, Scott collaborated on the article with Mathew Cocomazzo, AOD Clinician and Client Services Team Leader at the NJC. Scott said the article “illustrates the integrated service model at the NJC using an extended case study example.”

“Mathew and I worked closely together over an extended period to support a consumer with multiple and complex needs achieve some significant outcomes for their health and wellbeing,” Scott said of the case study featured in the article.

Scott works closely with the range of co-located services at the NJC, providing support to people that encounter the criminal justice system and addressing the underlying factors that influence offending. 

newparadigm is a quarterly publication developed by Community Mental Health Australia and Mental Health Victoria (formerly Vicserv). It features new research and developments in the psychosocial rehabilitation sector.
