Lambeth and Southwark Mind – supported self-help practitioner
The aim of this exciting role is to contribute to the delivery of Mind’s supported self-help programme. National Mind and local Minds are working together to ensure people have access to a high-quality mental health service.
What you'll do
This part-time role will be based with Lambeth and Southwark Mind, working closely with colleagues in Mind in Bexley. You will support the delivery of the service across south east London, as part of a Federation-wide approach to the delivery of supported self-help.
You will be responsible for a caseload of supported self-help clients and work with people to overcome early signs of mental health distress such as anxiety, depression and stress. The service follows a set programme which includes referring people to higher levels of intervention when required and/or signposting to other services that might help them to maintain wellbeing. You'll establish positive client engagement and input and promote social inclusion, early intervention and recovery and ensure this underpins the direction of supported self-help activities.
We're looking for someone with:
- At least 12 months’ experience using social care skills working face to face with the public, some of whom may present as emotionally upset or angry, or 6 months of providing mental health/wellbeing services within a primary care setting
- Level 3 in health and social care or equivalent qualification
- Knowledge of social care and the issues of supporting people with a range of mental health issues, including risk assessment
- Understanding of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Stepped Care Model guidelines
