An exciting opportunity has arisen within our recently formed Integrated Mental Health Team in Cannock, Rugeley and Great Haywood. Integrated Mental Health Teams offer community based interventions for people experiencing a range of mental health conditions. The teams have been developed in line with MPFT’s Community Mental Health Transformation Framework to offer integrated, place based community mental health services.

We are now looking for 2 Mental Health Practitioners to join our dynamic and friendly team, one permanent position and a further on a 12 month, fixed term contract.

The Integrated Mental Health Team is an innovative secondary care community team that is guided by collective leadership, providing evidence-based psychological and medical interventions to patients with a wide range of complex mental health needs. This role will have a focus on mental health needs of a non-psychotic nature (i.e depression, OCD, anxiety, trauma, personality disorder etc.)

The patient’s journey is guided by psychological formulation of his or her presenting needs and difficulties, which subsequently inform the development of a plan of care for the patient. We draw from evidence-based interventions to provide high quality and effective individual and workshop treatments.

We are looking for an experienced Mental Health Nurse who has a keen interest in working in a multi-disciplinary setting with patients experiencing mental health difficulties using a range of approaches. The successful applicant will be motivated to provide high quality care to our patients. The candidate will need to have drive and determination in regards to their own personal development, whilst using their own creative and innovative ideas to support the continuous development of this exciting team.

In return the successful candidate can expect the following:

  • Support with settling into the team and developing into the role.
  • Right from the start of joining the team, a clear and ongoing conversation about your skills and personal career progression, which is managed through the Trust’s appraisal process.
  • A commitment to supporting you to remain up to date with your practice and develop skills through formal and informal training.
  • Regular, high quality clinical and managerial supervision.
  • Warm, friendly and supportive colleagues.
  • Collective leads who are committed to the psychological and physical wellbeing of staff in the pathway.
  • A continual commitment to embrace lean methodology to improve the quality of the services provided for patients/their carers and the experience of staff working within the pathway.
  • You will belong to a highly skilled multi-disciplinary team which includes nursing colleagues, allied health professionals, psychologists, psychiatrists, support workers and peer support workers.
  • Our last CQC inspection achieved Good throughout the trust making us a great trust to work for.
  • Staff wellbeing is at the heart of the organisation with regular events held throughout the year. See our twitter feed @mpftBigShoutOut and #mpftBigSoothe
