Full Time Job Vacancy: Mental Health Transformation Officer

Accrington Stanley Community Trust are looking for a Mental Health Transformation Officer to join our vibrant and forward-thinking organisation.

We are working as a collective across the Lancashire and South Cumbria (LCS) footprint to develop an innovative programme that will support Year 6 children through their transition from primary to secondary school over the period of a year.

As a Mental Health Transformation Officer (MHTO) you will work within up to five Primary schools and will help to revolutionise the way we think, talk and act about mental health, providing an early intervention and prevention service for children.

The aim is to increase resilience and give pupils the necessary tools to thrive. The MHTO will work with the school to identify those requiring one-to-one support, predominately pupils who are currently accessing Mental Health support services, or are at higher risk of needing them.

Using a flexible approach, they will provide interventions at the earliest opportunity; providing education on coping strategies and self-management with the end goal to reduce the number of individuals and therefore the demand on local CAMHS services which currently have large waiting lists.

Reporting directly to the Head of Sport, the MHTO will be an important member of the delivery team and be responsible for devising, developing and delivering the project on behalf of the organisation.
