West Sussex Mind - GP Practice Mental Health Workers

About the role

GP practices want to significantly improve the support they offer patients with mental health problems and are working in partnership with West Sussex Mind to achieve this by funding new roles which will be based in practices.

For these new roles we are looking for individuals with relevant mental health work experience and ideally a relevant qualification (perhaps as a counsellor, teacher, social worker, nurse, PWP, youth worker, family, housing or advice worker) who have a passion and interest in this area.

As a GP practice mental health worker you will see patients individually, supporting them to identify what they need and helping them to work on issues and also access local support to meet these needs including local Pathfinder services. You will be able to take a holistic and flexible approach in your work with individuals supporting around both social and pyschological issues that arise. You may also run practice based groups and well-being sessions where these needs are identified.

Depending on who is recruited there may well be some flexibility in the hours and days worked. The successful candidates will need to be able to travel to different sites. Please indicate on your application:
• Whether you wish to be considered for a post working with adults or children and young people
• If you want to work full or part-time and if part-time the days/hours you are able to work.
• Any preferred location
