The PSW needs to have a lived experience of mental health and an understanding of mental ill health. You will need to demonstrate a clear understanding and ability to put into practice self-management skills.

The position requires a minimum of 2 years qualification and it is desirable to have a minimum of a HNC/SVQ 3 in relevant Health or Social Care or equivalent, or willingness to work towards this.
