Support in Mind Scotland is the lead partner in the Highlands for the Scottish Governments Distress Brief Intervention project (DBI). The DBI is a major, innovative project which introduces a ground-breaking approach to addressing the emotional and psychological pain experienced by people in distress.

Working in partnership with frontline services (including Police, Ambulance,
Primary Care and Emergency Departments) and with third sector support organisations, the project provides rapid referral to focussed, short-term support,
with the option of onward referral to longer-term support if required.

We are seeking to appoint an experienced, dynamic and creative Project Manager to
lead a team with the task of delivering and managing the pilot project in the Highlands.
This post will offer an exciting opportunity to work creatively in areas including project
planning, training and partnership building.

We are also seeking to appoint a Coordinator who will provide support, advice and
personal planning for people referred from front-line services. Coordinators will do
intensive short-term work with people to review the reasons for their distress, develop
immediate coping strategies and link individuals into a range of appropriate community
services and facilities if appropriate.

The post holder will be required to join the PVG Scheme.
