In January 2017, SAMH introduced a new suite of services throughout the whole of Aberdeenshire to support people with mental health problems on their recovery journey. The resilience coaching led services also support autistic individuals.
Around since 1923, SAMH is Scotland’s national mental health charity. Today, SAMH operates 60 services in communities across Scotland providing mental health social care support, homelessness, addictions and employment services among others. These services, together with our national programme work in See Me, respectme, suicide prevention and active living; inform our policy and campaign work to influence positive social change.
As SAMH continues on this exciting new pathway, we are seeking outstanding people to develop and deliver these services across Aberdeenshire. To successfully embed the 8 elements of our peripatetic service, SAMH are seeking flexible, enthusiastic people to work with individuals, groups and volunteers within local communities across Aberdeenshire.
As a flexible and skilled communicator you will deliver meaningful support to people accessing our services. Whether working with individuals or with groups you will support people to strengthen their existing skills and identify and build new skills. Utilising coaching approaches you will help people build momentum in self-management and personal resilience. Although this role will be working across the whole of Aberdeenshire, the post holder’s main location will be in central Aberdeenshire with a focus on the central and north areas.
