Who we are

Since 1989, Jobs in Mind have been providing specialist employment support and advice for those struggling with work-related issues caused by stress, anxiety or mental health conditions. Our mission has always been to provide a range of services that encourage our clients to participate in activities and schemes that are right for them and to – ultimately – help improve their mental health and wellbeing so that they can thrive in the workplace.

What does Jobs in Mind do?

Because we believe that mental health conditions are best treated by a holistic combination of medical, psychiatric and therapeutic approaches, we work closely with local authorities, the NHS, local health services and mental health organisations to provide everything you need to thrive in the workplace, from therapeutic treatment to a support network.

Over the past 27 years, we have seen that participants who are able to choose and take an active role in their own development are significantly more likely to find and sustain employment. That’s why we believe that it is important for each client to be able to choose the opportunities, schemes and courses of action that are right for them, and encourage them to take an active role in every stage of the process.

‘I have worked alongside Jobs in Mind in IAPT since 2009. We have found the Jobs in Mind service an invaluable resource for both clinicians and patients. Having the Jobs in Mind staff co-located with our teams has meant that they have been able to provide a service which is responsive, timely and effective to our patients and has complemented and augmented the psychological service which we provide. The outcomes for patients have been exceptional.’
