Mental Health Sessional Workers - Staying Well Service

November 2020

We are providing an evening and weekend crisis prevention service in central Worthing and are looking for experienced, enthusiastic, and resilient mental health workers to help us run it.

Salary: £12.43 per hour

Hours: part-time adhoc sessional basis

Location: Worthing

The Staying Well service offers a safe and supportive out-of-hours service specifically aimed at individuals who are struggling to cope when other mental health services are not available. This will include individuals where regular or frequent mental health crises are a feature of their on-going mental health needs and where having a safe place which they can choose to attend will help to prevent them needing NHS urgent care services.

The service will operate during the week from 5pm-10.30pm and from 12 noon–10.30pm at weekends.

Staying Well shift leads will take responsibility for leading the operation of the service whilst on duty. They will oversee the running of each shift ensuring that individuals accessing the service are effectively supported to stay safe and benefit from being in the environment. This will include direct work with individuals as well as overseeing the work of peer support staff and volunteers.
