Young Persons Wellbeing & Mental Health Worker

"Because like you we are dedicated to changing attitudes and changing lives"

Are you passionate about working with young people? Do you have a positive, self-motivated and enthusiastic attitude to work? Have you got an ability to initiate and maintain constructive relations with young people from a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds? Do you have a proactive approach to work and the ability to motivate and engage people? If so, we want to hear from you!

Following a new initiative supported by the Department for Health and Social Care, Response are now delivering a new service launching in 2020, named the Mental Wealth Academy.
This is an innovative new project supporting young people affected by life-changing events, who are falling through gaps created by transition pathways from CAMHS to Adult Mental Health services.

The Mental Wealth Academy will expand their reach and impact through a preventative programme consisting of training, peer mentorship and direct intervention, with the Young Persons Wellbeing & Mental Health Worker being at the heart of the workforce with this innovative new initiative.

Through a creative and caring approach, you will build positive relationships with both young people and their families, supporting them in the planning of goals, helping them access services and providing on-going mentoring.
You will work with approximately 80 young people per year with at least 20 at any one time.
Duties will include one-to-one recovery focussed interventions, which provide evidence based therapies; emotional literacy and self-management tools; sessions on employability skills and accreditation provided by partners who specialise in employment pathways.
