This exciting opportunity within SAMH is part of a range of new services set up through investment from the Co-op National Charity Partnership. The Partnership brings together Co-op, SAMH, Mind and Inspire to improve the resilience of communities across the UK by supporting people to improve their own and other’s mental health and wellbeing.

In this Together recognises that for many experiencing mental health difficulties, having access to support and information can be challenging. In this Together aims to engage and work together with individuals and their wider social networks to put in place wellbeing action plans, equipping them with self-management tools and awareness of how to look after their mental health and wellbeing.

SAMH are looking to appoint an In this Together Practitioner that will look to reach individuals in communities most in need through the provision of informal pop-up stations running in parallel to local community opportunities, like local foodbanks. These accessible pop-up stations will help open up conversation on mental health and provide a chance for individuals and their wider network to explore and interact with a range of resources to support wellbeing alongside supporting early signposting to wider community based activities.

We are looking for an experienced individual who is passionate about supporting individuals to make meaningful improvements to their mental health and wellbeing. You will need to demonstrate experience of delivering 1to1 support, training and workshops, with an in-depth knowledge of mental health and wellbeing. With exceptional communication skills, you’ll need to be flexible and dynamic to respond to the needs of the service, ensuring your practice is of the highest quality at all times. You will demonstrate a professional approach, whilst maintaining good working relationships with external partners and community organisations.
