Mental Health Social Prescriber in Adur

September 2021

Could you make a difference to local people? West Sussex Mind (WS Mind) are looking for a Mental Health Social Prescriber to join our successful service based in GP surgeries across Worthing and Adur.

Full-time role available – 37.5 hour per week

Full-time equiv. salary £25,000


This is a NEW and EXCITING opportunity as the service expands into Shoreham and Southwick, working in partnership to join a passionate team who work together to support individuals with mental health needs across Worthing, Adur and Chanctonbury.

The successful applicant will provide recovery focused 1:1 sessions, assessments, and risk assessments as a Pathfinder Primary Care Mental Health Social Prescriber (PPCMHSP). The role will also involve managing a caseload, working within a team managed by WS Mind and building a rapport with the GP surgery/surgeries that they’re based in – that is also a new partnership for WS Mind.

As a Mental Health Social Prescriber 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.

Applicants must have a full UK driving licence and an independent means of transport in order to fulfil the role covering Adur and supporting team members in other locations (mileage will be paid for travel beyond agreed base).
