Our vision is for a world with good mental health for all. With prevention at the heart of what we do, we aim to find and address the sources of mental health problems so that people and communities can thrive.

The Mental Health Foundation is recruiting for a Project Manager to support our Together to Thrive project.

This exciting Project Manager role will lead the implementation of Together to Thrive - a targeted programme for at risk families, children and young people utilising a task sharing model.

Together to Thrive (TTT) is a collaboration between MHF, NHS Tayside CAMHS, Dundee City Council (via the Alliance) and third sector delivery organisations and school referral partners. Funding comes via the Whole Family Wellbeing Fund.

It aims to deliver transformational change in how support is delivered to families. This includes working with community organisations to enhance the provision of support for parents of children (5 to 11) with neuro developmental concerns who are currently on the CAMHS waiting list or identified via schools as having emerging neuro developmental differences. With the overall aim of impact of providing early support and preventing escalation of children onto CAMHS waiting list where not required

Task sharing is an evidence-based model that adapts and redirects support from specialist mental services to community-based settings.

The postholder will draw upon the expertise from within MHF, local families and community partners. This includes NHS Tayside CAMHS, sessional parental advisors, education and community-based organisations. They will build on learning from the first 18-month pilot, which ran until March 24, with the view to build relationships with new partners, identify key areas for future development and opportunities to embed the Together to Thrive model.
