About Oxfordshire Mind

We’re Mind, the mental health charity. We’re here to make sure anyone with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for advice and support; in total over 20,000 people in Oxfordshire access our services each year. With one in four people experiencing a mental health problem at some point in their lives, people need Mind more than ever. Our work includes:

  • The Transitional Supported Housing Recovery Service (part of the Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership).
  • The TalkingSpace Plus psychological therapy service in partnership with Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.
  • The Oxfordshire Mind Wellbeing Service, which is part of both the TalkingSpace Plus and Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnerships and includes:
  • Five Wellbeing Centres throughout the county
  • Public Wellbeing & Information Services
  • Physical Activity and Wellbeing
  • Benefits for Better Mental Health, a welfare benefits advice service
  • Volunteering and Peer Support Opportunities
  • Raising awareness and campaigning activity.

We employ over 100 staff and operate in 28 locations around the county.

Purpose of the Job

Oxfordshire Mind AMHT Wellbeing Service Workers will offer up to six one-to-one sessions with service users of Oxfordshire Adult Mental Health Teams (AMHT) to find solutions to maintain and improve their own wellbeing.

Service users will be referred by staff in the AMHT across Oxfordshire and may be people who are:

  • Likely to be discharged following an initial assessment with the AMHT or after a brief period of treatment.
  • Unlikely to meet the threshold for an initial assessment with the AMHT
  • Currently receiving treatment from AMHT but due to be discharged

Wellbeing Workers will work in a person-centred way, supporting individuals to build resilience and utilise resources in their community to maintain or improve levels of wellbeing and mental health without ongoing support from the AMHT.

The project will aim to contribute to a reduction in demand on AMHT frontline practitioners and reduce re-referrals to AMHT by enabling service users to access appropriate support and avoid reaching a point of mental health crisis.

The Wellbeing Workers will act as a point of contact for AMHT staff and will share knowledge and expertise in relation to community-based support providers and resources.

The key responsibilities of the AMHT Wellbeing Service Worker are to:

  • Ensure that people referred by AMHT staff receive an excellent person-centred service via an initial assessment and follow-up sessions as required.
  • Support individuals to identify their own hopes and goals and develop a personal action plan to increase resilience and maintain wellbeing.
  • Signpost and refer service users to appropriate services and community resources.
  • Provide a number of in-depth ‘signposting only’ sessions, (number to be agreed with Oxford City AMHT Manager). Sessions will include information on a wide range of services and resources, both mental health specific and widely accessible community provision.
  • Carry out follow up contact with individuals to evaluate outcomes using designated measures such as the Short Warwickshire-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale (SWEMWBS) and patient satisfaction measures.
