Job description

Job responsibilities

What is Mental Health Together?

In Kent and Medway, the community mental health transformation has created a new service model called Mental Health Together.

It is a multi-agency offer, which means bringing all the services and agencies that support people with varying mental health needs much closer together. This ensures that people get the right care, without having to navigate service boundaries and without repeatedly telling their story.

Mental Health Together will add new roles, as part of a new joined-up model of care which bridges the gap that currently exists between primary (i.e. GPs) and community mental health (i.e. KMPT). It will treat people with complex mental health needs by:
  • Providing someone with support in a person-centered, holistic way
  • Removing barriers to access, and thresholds across services working together
  • Involving service users and carers as equal partners in their care
  • Building in involvement and co-production at all levels of service design delivery
  • Delivering needs-led and personalized trauma-informed care.
