Mental Health Support volunteer
Guideposts in SW Hertfordshire (Watford, Three Rivers and Hertsmere) supports adults in their own mental health recovery journey. They support people in groups and on a 1-1 basis. The service is currently on a telephone/email basis, they need volunteers who can listen and support someone who is socially isolated. A volunteer needs patience, time, positive listening skills and a calm demeanour. They will provide volunteer training about mental health conditions, their services, boundaries, safeguarding, confidentiality and expectations of the role. The volunteer would need to be in regular touch with the scheme coordinator to give an update on how someone is doing and have support in signposting someone for additional support, shopping, etc.
