Join our passionate Mind in Kingston team, working on our exciting new service: The Magpie Project.
As part of our strategy work, we want to advance mental health equality in Kingston and surrounding areas.
The Magpie Project will benefit any adult living, working or studying in the borough of Kingston, who is experiencing mental health or emotional wellbeing problems, and is of Korean heritage. The project will be open for referrals for wellbeing support in the form of culturally-sensitive 1:1 advice and guidance, group wellbeing sessions and mental health awareness training.
Through this new initiative, local individuals from the Korean community will be able to access a culturally-sensitive, bilingual mental-health outreach worker for support and signposting. Through mental health awareness training, the Magpie Project will also support the local groups and community members to feel more empowered to challenge mental health stigma, to navigate mental health services and to promote positive wellbeing in their day to day lives.
Once in post, the appointed Korean staff members will :
- Offer 1:1 signposting and wellbeing support to referred individuals
- Coordinate Wellbeing sessions such as mindfulness, yoga and cooking, in collaboration with other community groups and Korean sessional workers
