Hammersmith & Fulham Mind (HFM) is an independent mental health provider working with people living in the boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham and beyond for over 25 years.

Are you passionate about protecting and enhancing the mental health and wellbeing of the next generation? This is a fantastic opportunity to develop and deliver a pioneering new service called ‘Learn Well’ that supports pupils, teachers and parents in secondary schools to effectively manage their mental health and crucially prevent mental health problems from developing at a young age. The Learn Well programme will aim to improve young people’s (11 to 18) psychological wellbeing by building resilience, promoting positive practices, adaptive coping skills and raising awareness of how to get help if their mental health deteriorates.

We’re looking for a unique person who has experience in mental health and delivering engaging programmes and/or training with young people. We are actively working on expanding our Learn Well programme into more secondary schools so there is the potential for this to move towards a full time role in the near future.

HFM offer competitive benefits to employees, including 25 days’ annual leave pro rata (rising to 30) and flexible working.

HFM is an equal opportunities employer and encourages applications from all sections of the community. We particularly encourage applications from individuals who have experience of using mental health services as well as people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds.
