This is an exciting opportunity to join the Stigma Free Lanarkshire team based in Motherwell, Lanarkshire. Building on a history of vigorous campaigning against mental health stigma and working in partnership with See Me Scotland and NHS Lanarkshire, the Stigma Free Lanarkshire programme is leading in the planning, delivery, monitoring and evaluation of an ambitious programme of change at local level here.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, focused and motivated person who understands the issues surrounding mental health stigma and is passionate and serious about tackling it. As Stigma Free Lanarkshire Development Officer you will work closely with NHS Lanarkshire, See Me colleagues, and other key stakeholders, in the promotion and delivery of the project across four areas: health and social care, communities, the workplace, and education and young people. In addition, embedding a rights-based approach, you will assist in achieving the project’s aims to create inclusive systems, culture and practice as well as encouraging opportunities for contact between those who experience stigma and those who perpetrate it.

This project is funded by NHS Lanarkshire. It is hosted by the service user and carer organisation, Lanarkshire Links, whose purpose is to support mental health service users and carers to be involved in the process of planning services and provision.

Closing date for applications is Friday the 25th of February by 5pm.

Interviews may hold place via Teams in line with COVID guidance.
