Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest – Suicide Postvention Worker

About the role

Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest (Mind CHWF) is a multi-disciplinary provider of specialist mental health services and a part of the Mind Federation. In co-production with our service users, we develop individualized and effective support plans, promoting both recovery from ill health for people with recurrent and enduring mental health difficulties and early intervention and mental/physical wellbeing for those at risk of developing mental health issues or who struggle with common mental health conditions.

Mind in the City,Hackney and Waltham Forest, alongside community partners, has been awarded NHS England funding to develop and deliver a ‘Postvention’ service to support people bereaved by suicide. The project will support people in the immediate aftermath of a suicide. Postvention is an internationally evidenced way of reducing risk of suicide in people who have been bereaved in this manner. Interventions offered within this service include peer led support for individuals, within groups and informal support/ memorial events for families with children. We're seeking a calm and compassionate person who is experienced in facilitating groups for people who've experienced grief and trauma to lead our postvention groups to support people who have been bereaved by suicide. The post holders will be employed by Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest and be part of the regional Suicide Prevention Collaborative team, based at different locations offering a range of interventions to people who are at risk of suicide or who have been bereaved by suicide.

We are open to conversations about flexible working, however the postholder will need to be visible and present in the office, particularly during the first three months, subject to an individual Covid Risk assessment. We have a flexible approach to working from home.
