This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a ground-breaking approach to mental health services. Thrive Edinburgh brings together a collaboration of partner organisations to work together to improve the mental health and wellbeing of the people of the City. The aims of Thrive Edinburgh centres around enabling people to live well and fulfil their potential.

The Connect Partnership represents a unique collaboration between leading 3rd sector providers Penumbra, Health in Mind and Support in Mind Scotland. Our organisations share a commitment to the Thrive vision and values of trust; respect; collaboration; person-centeredness; innovation; and compassion. Together we will deliver a multi-disciplinary and multi-agency response to people, so people receive the right help at the right time.

Specific to the role within the Locality Team, you will offer trauma informed therapeutic support to people who self harm or with suicidal ideation to cope with crisis and trauma by exploring their emotions and concerns in a confidential setting.

Recovery Practitioners play a central role in the planning and provision of quality, recovery focused support to people who use the service.

You will be based in a locality and will be required to develop, build and maintain professional links in order to deliver outcome focussed support within that area.

Support is to be provided in an appropriate environment where supported people can expect to be treated with respect, be given the time and space to discuss issues at their own pace, to explore skill development and tools to support them to manage their self-harm.

We welcome applications from individuals who would appropriately and intentionally use their lived experience as an integral part of the therapeutic support provided, where applicable.
