Andover Mind is one of Hampshire’s leading mental health charities. With 1 in 6 young people experiencing a mental health problem (and this is expected to rise), we have recently launched our “Be You” young persons service. This new service allows us to support young people aged 11-17 in Andover to help build resilience and coping skills and to learn, support and maintain their well-being, particularly as we emerge from the pandemic.

This position is an exciting opportunity to be part of our newly created team in its early stages and contribute towards the success of its services.

Our Practitioners manage a caseload of young people through the delivery of focused one to one support, groups and courses using a strength based approach and person-centred strategies to meet the individual needs of the young person.

Working with other members of the team, you will assist a young person to access information on leisure activities, health promotion, and to obtain information which will enable them to access benefits and welfare rights resources.

So, if you have excellent communication skills, experience assisting young people in their mental health recovery, are enthusiastic and friendly, we would love to hear from you!

We offer ongoing training and development to all staff and 27 days holiday entitlement rising to 30 days after 3 full years service plus bank holidays.
