Are you passionate working with people with Severe and Enduring Mental illness? If so and you feel you can make a real difference in supporting people through a positive recovery journey and are driven to delivering evidence-based interventions, a career with us may be what you’re looking for.

In the Hereford City Neighbourhood Mental Health Teams, we are working to improve the mental health and wellbeing of our local communities. Being an early implementer of the Community Mental Health Transformation project we have completed the alignment of our services with local Primary Care Networks and GP practices and have developed exciting partnerships with a range of voluntary services. We have developed new, local population focused, mental health pathways aimed at reducing health inequalities and improving the resilience of our communities.

We currently have an opportunity for the right candidate to join our team of dedicated and experienced mental health practitioners.

You will work as a key member and resource of the core Neighbourhood Mental Health team. You will hold a blended caseload of patients with severe mental illness and those with common mental disorders, however your caseload will reflect your strong professional interest in supporting people with complex presentations related to severe and enduring mental illness and difficulties engaging with services. This post will also have opportunities to engage with local MAPA and MARAC processes and to provide specialist risk assessments for the locality team.

You will have experience of working with this user group in community settings. You will have a registered qualification in mental health nursing, occupational therapy or social work.

Ideally you will have experience, or training in a number of therapies, which may include Solution Focused Therapy, CBT and Structured Case Management. We will provide this training if required, following a successful probationary period, for the right candidate.

The ability to work flexibly as the need of the service demands is essential.
