NICE are recruiting for a counsellor to sit on the depression in adults guideline committee.

The role will help shape the recommendations the guideline makes around interventions available for adults with depression.

Matt Smith-Lilley, our Policy and Engagement Lead (Mental Health), said: “This is an incredibly important opportunity to ensure the voice of counselling is further involved in the development of the NICE depression in adults guideline.

“This guideline has far-ranging impacts on what services, interventions and practitioners are commissioned to deliver mental health services for adults across much of the UK.

“While NICE’s rules prevent organisations, such as BACP, from being represented on their guideline committees, we want to advertise this opportunity for a counsellor to be involved in the development of this vital guideline as wide as possible to ensure the voice of counselling and psychotherapy is heard.”

Applications for the role close on June 30 with interviews taking place on July 31.
