This role is about helping people in the community manage their mental health and address issues that are affecting it. 

The people you support will have long-term mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety and personality disorder.

  • Experience of delivering mental health support 
  • Knowledge of mental health services 
  • The ability to develop good relationships with other professionals and organisations
