Mind Newham - IPS Employment Service

At Mind, we believe we all have mental health and that everyone who is experiencing a mental health challenge can recover.  We are here to make sure anyone with a mental health or emotional issue has somewhere to turn for advice and support.

Finding and retaining paid work can play a significant part in your recovery from mental health condition. Benefits include the daily structure a job brings, an expansion of your social and support networks, an increase in income and a sense of an identity other than that of a mental health service user. 

Sometimes it can be difficult to look for employment, especially after having had a break from the work place. That is where our Employment Specialists can make a difference.

  • Intend to collaboratively work with us throughout your employment journey
  • Have been diagnosed with a mental health condition
  • Are being supported by a Clinician in Newham

We will help in the following ways:

  • Rapid job search and employer engagement

  • Support you whilst in employment including career development
