Personalised employment support linked to short-term ‘talking therapy’ from NHS's Improving Access to Psychological Therapies service.
This project takes a preventative approach to mental good health by offering a combination of short-term ‘talking’ therapy from qualified health care professionals, alongside employment-specific advice from Status Employment.
A Status Employment Consultant will work with you to identify your work needs to help you either retain your job or find a new one.
You must live in Lambeth or be registered with a Lambeth GP and be over 18 years old.
You must have been off work, or at risk of going off work with sickness absence (or are unemployed on unemployment benefits).
You must want to get back into work.
You must have an understanding of your mental health and be able to manage any medication or engage with available support networks.
You should be engaged in (or wanting to start) the programme of short-term therapy provided by our health partners.
You do not have to identify as having a disability. We will discuss the pros and cons of this regarding your employment with you.
