Coventry and Warwickshire Mind – supported self help practitioner

About the role

Supported self help (previously called active monitoring) is an early intervention service, developed by Mind and designed to improve the mental health and wellbeing of adults.

It's a guided self-help programme run by trained mental health practitioners. The service supports people to develop strategies to manage their health and wellbeing.

Beneficiaries go to an introductory meeting with the practitioner, where they discuss the support they need and whether supported self help is right for them.

They then choose one of 7 pathways, including:

  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Low mood
  • Low self-esteem
  • Stress
  • Grief and loss
  • Feeling alone
  • Managing anger.

They'll have 5 sessions to work through their pathway. Then together, you'll create a toolkit of resources to support them.

Key Responsibilities

  • Manage a caseload of clients
  • Help people to overcome early signs of mental health distress, such as anxiety, depression and stress
  • Refer people to higher levels of intervention and signpost to other services
  • Work positively with clients and promote general aspects of wellbeing
  • Maintain records of clients’ personal data and wellbeing outcomes
