Employment Support Programme

Tailored employment support for people accessing NHS Talking Therapies services in Kent and Medway

If you are struggling with your mental health and you find that your employment is affected, we are WithYou. Through our NHS Talking Therapies service, we can provide free advice and support.

  • Tailored employment support

What does employment support involve?

Our Employment Support programme is for those whose mental health is affecting their employment, or their ability to get a job. 

You'll be given access to a specialist Employment Advisor who will work with you whilst you are also receiving your talking therapies treatment. The Employment Advisor will provide you with specialist support around your individual employment needs, which might include:

  • Providing information, advice and guidance including career advice
  • Support with writing a CV and interview techniques 
  • Support to access work 
  • Working collaboratively with employers to support mental health in the workplace

If you are someone who is facing difficulties in the workplace, is currently on sick leave due to your mental health, or if you are looking for work, this programme could be right for you. 

How do I access the employment support programme? 

If you are currently receiving NHS Talking Therapies services, you can speak to your therapist about your employment needs and they can refer you for the Employment Support programme.
