This is an exciting time to be joining Mind and becoming part of the partnership with the Norfolk & Suffolk Mental Health Foundation Trust delivering services within the provision of the Norfolk and Waveney Wellbeing Service.  The service is commissioned by the five CCG areas to help people with mild to moderate mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.  Services are provided from bases in Kings Lynn, Gt Yarmouth, North Walsham, Wymondham and Norwich for people aged 16 and over.  The successful applicants will be committed to delivering excellent support to those accessing the Wellbeing Service, be able to work within a team and be responsive and adaptive to change.

This role is the lead for an employment advice service, working closely with the wider team which provides psychological therapies to people with common mental health problems such as anxiety and depression, and their clinicians.

"Wellbeing were very kind. They listened to my problem, and have helped me to overcome some of my fears, so I am now able to actually leave my house and go in a shop. Their help has been amazing and I thank them very much as I now have a new life thanks to them."
