As a Support Navigator you will assist NoStigmas in responding to mental health support inquiries. This position requires an understanding of NoStigmas' tools and resources for those who are seeking mental health support. This position does NOT provide mental health services, but directs people to resources where they may get support.
This position supports community members largely via social media. The ideal candidate considers themselves an active user of Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Youtube, or Instagram. This is an outward-facing position which requires direct contact with NoStigmas community members.
