Brief Description of the Role:

As a Support Worker, you will be working with people with mental health needs in a 5 bedded house which offers a short-term retreat and wellbeing support. The aim of the Wellbeing House is to:

• Support Guests to develop wellbeing and safety plans to help prevent further escalation which may result in hospital admission and/or crisis.
