We are looking for an enthusiastic, experienced and adaptable Mental Health Adviser to join our vibrant Wellbeing team within the Directorate of Student Support & Success Services. The department supports student retention, achievement and satisfaction by providing a range of services to enhance student wellbeing and ensure that all students have access to a range of support appropriate to their needs. The Wellbeing Team comprises three areas of support: wellbeing advice and guidance, mental health interventions and short-term counselling. The aim is for services to be visible, effective, accessible and tailored to the needs of our student community. The service makes a key contribution to the University’s mission to support all students, whatever their background, to reach their full potential.

The Mental Health Adviser will join our growing team of Advisers as an expert clinician responsible for the co-ordination and management of complex mental health student cases. The role involves managing a caseload and supporting and initiating crisis and longer-tern interventions for students with mental health diagnoses, many of whom are high risk. We are looking for someone who is passionate, motivated and a team-player. 

At Roehampton, we change lives by helping our students to develop the confidence, knowledge and adaptability they need for a successful graduate career and fulfilling life.

We are a supportive, close-knit and inclusive community, with a proud history in higher education stretching back more than 175 years. Our values come from this rich history, built on community, engagement and partnership, with a belief that no matter their background, we can help our students realise their ambitions.  Our graduates today have excellent employment prospects and are part of a thriving global community of Roehampton alumni.

We are London’s Campus University, based on a beautiful 54-acre parkland campus. This short video will give you a taste of life at our wonderful campus and its excellent facilities.
