ACUMEN (Advancing Community Understanding of Mental and Emotional Needs)
ACUMEN is a network of people who use mental health support and carers from across the West of Scotland. We are seeking an enthusiastic individual to join ACUMEN in East Renfrewshire.
The post is funded in partnership with East Renfrewshire HSCP and will forge direct links to other well established service user and carer networks; represent service users and carers in a variety of forums and work to develop opportunities for service user and carer experience to be represented at the strategic level.
The worker will support the Development Manager by practical involvement and representation in service consultation, planning and review. The post will support individuals who may use services in East Renfrewshire by acting as a dedicated focal point for information and consultation. Direct experience of working closely with services is essential as is an understanding of current mental health strategy and excellent communication, organisational and IT skills.
For further information or an informal discussion about the post, please telephone Rachel McLean, Development Manager on: 0141 847 8900
We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who has an understanding of Self-Management and the role this has in an individual’s Mental Health Recovery journey. The post will support and ensure the successful activity of the Self-Management Project across East Renfrewshire and Renfrewshire, working alongside people with a lived experience of mental health issues. You will have an awareness and skills in delivering new approaches in self-management monitoring, evaluating, and how this links into current mental health policies.
