At Sonder, we’ve been helping people across South Australia to improve their wellbeing and live better lives since 1993. We support thousands of people each year with mental health challenges, drug and alcohol use concerns, chronic disease management and employment.
You may have noticed recently that Sonder has been advertising a large number of role opportunities - this is all due to our significant growth which has resulted in us being able to support more people in more communities.
Whilst our growth has led to us now employing over 300 people, we’ve made sure to retain our friendly culture and practical approach.
When you work with Sonder, you become part of the Sonder family and that provides you with a number of benefits such as:
Mission Australian and Sonder are collaborating to deliver Partners Toward Wellbeing, a unique service offering access to support AOD substance use and evidence-based interventions to assist with the management of co-occurring, or comorbid, mental health conditions.

With locations spanning from Metropolitan North, Central Metropolitan and Metropolitan South we will be providing assertive outreach, counselling, care coordination, peer support and information/education.
The AOD Comorbidity Clinician will work as part of a multidisciplinary team of AOD Workers, Comorbidity Clinicians, and AOD Peer Support Workers through the Partners Toward Wellbeing Consortium to deliver evidence-based interventions to assist with the management of co-occurring, or comorbid, AOD and mental health conditions.
The goal of management is to allow AOD treatment to continue without mental health symptoms disrupting the treatment process, and to retain clients in treatment who might otherwise discontinue.
