Thank you for your interest in joining Healthy Teen Minds!

We are a values-driven organisation with big ambitions to change the future for young people with lived experience of mental health.  We believe the role young people can play in transforming the mental health ‘system’ is significantly undervalued and so we are working to challenge the status quo and enable young people-powered change.

We are looking for a confident mental health professional able to offer accessible expertise in a variety of settings. This will include co-producing education, training and strategy documents with young people and professionals from all parts of the children and young people’s mental health system (and beyond!). You will recognise that mental health is not a specialist subject, but specialist knowledge plays a role. Increasing access to knowledge, skills and confidence around how parents, professionals and carers support young people’s mental health is vital in creating a stronger, more accessible community and care system. You will have a drive to create and build, recognising that you’re joining a growing team with ambitions to transform the lives of young people with lived experience of mental health.
