About us

How we work:

The Team's approach is based on the Structured Clinical Management (SCM) model; a model that gives clinicians a framework to guide their work with service-users based on psychologically informed best practice. The essence of SCM is formulation based case management, including therapy, active crisis planning, and medication as an adjunct where appropriate. The Team works with people around social care as well as psychological needs. All of these elements are aimed at engaging people in a way that means they continue to be as independent as possible.

The SCM approach is not a rigid one, but it does give a clear understanding of the ethos that underpins our work working with people's strengths and abilities to build a life around their own goals.

The Community Team use the Care Programme Approach to plan interventions. In future this will be replaced with Dialog+.

The opportunity:

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced registered professional, who has previous experience of working with this client group and leadership within a community mental health team, to develop these skills further and be part of a growing service that is dedicated to building positive futures for the staff team as well as the client group. You will be responsible, along with the Clinical & Operational Service Managers for the day to day running of the service and the ongoing evaluation of the work that we do.
