Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind is a highly regarded local charity, helping people to be mentally healthy and working together with those experiencing mental health problems and dementia to improve their quality of life. With an annual turnover of £7M, over 150 staff and 200 volunteers, we are one of the largest charities in the Mind network.
The Mindline and Crisis counselling service has been supporting people for approximately 35 years. The service aims to reduce risk to people in crisis, to strengthen people’s ability to manage emotional difficulties and mental distress, and to seek to prevent people being admitted to hospital. It is highly valued in the community both by those that use the service and those who refer people to this support.
Telephone support via Mindline is available Monday to Saturday and for 4 evenings during the week. For those who need face-to-face counselling, the service can offer crisis counselling appointments.
We are seeking to recruit a temporary Mindline and Crisis Intervention Coordinator to work 14.5 hours per week on a sessional basis.
This important role will coordinate all Mindline and crisis counselling activities, supporting a team of dedicated volunteer counsellors.
