Around since 1923, SAMH is Scotland’s national mental health charity.
SAMH has represented the voice of people most affected by mental health problems in Scotland for more than 90 years.
Today, in over 60 communities we work with adults and young people providing mental health social care support, services in primary care, schools and further education, 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.
SAMH is dedicated to mental health and wellbeing for all: with a vision of a society where people are able to live their lives fully, regardless of present or past circumstances.
These services support people who have been diagnosed with ARBD (Alcohol Related Brain Damage). The successful candidates should be able to establish supportive relationships with service users and offer them practical and emotional support. They will be able to demonstrate a solution focused approach to their work and a commitment to developing good team work practice.
Some knowledge and experience of working with ARBD and the complexity this can have on service users would be an advantage but not essential as training will be given.
Your duties will be the same as our Support Workers in demonstrating a solution focused approach to their work and a commitment to developing good team work practice.
