Community Mental Health Link Worker Team Leader

About the role

We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect. We provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.

The postholder will be in charge of handling half of the caseload and half of the coordination of staff, managing volunteers, drop-in, and peer groups (this ratio will heavily depend on project need) in Worcestershire. The postholder will be responsible for providing a high-quality, service-user-focused service to local residents who are suffering from or recovering from mental health and/or wellbeing. The postholder will also work directly with individuals experiencing mental health challenges to meet their needs in terms of social factors, wellness, and other health determinants. The Community Mental Health Link Worker Team Leader will have to work in our partnerships (including Onside, Worcestershire Association of Carers and the NHS but not exhaustive).

Equality & Diversity

We value the power of diversity. We embrace the different perspectives that each of us bring. We are creating an inclusive working environment where everyone is appreciated for being authentic and bringing their whole selves to work regardless of race, gender, age, religion, identity and experience.

We are committed to becoming truly anti-racist in everything we do and ensuring that all our employees are treated fairly and equitably at work and promoting equity in physical and mental health for all.

Our strategy has becoming an anti-racist organisation right at the centre of our work. For more information please visit click on the button below.
