Community Mental Health – Volunteer Opportunity

ONSIDE is delighted to be supporting the  transformation of community mental  health services in Worcestershire, aimed at  making mental health services more local,  accessible and responsive. In collaboration  with Worcestershire Association of Carers  and Springfield MIND we provide a range of  support designed to address the wider social  and practical needs of people living with  mental ill health.

Working within the neighbourhood mental  health teams alongside clinical and other  mental health services, Community Mental  Health Link Workers guide patients through  local health, social care and neighbourhood  services. Community Mental Health Volunteers  support adults who have been signposted to  community activities (e.g. walking groups,  choirs, art groups), information and advice  The support is available in both individual and  group peer settings.

This is the right role for you if you want to  make a positive difference to someone’s mental  wellbeing. We are looking for people who can  offer compassionate practical support to those  living with mental ill health. All training  required for this role is provided.
