We are looking to appoint highly skilled and experienced Mental health practitioner to work in the Early Intervention in Psychosis Service. We are seeking a Registered Mental Health Nurse, OT or Social worker who has skills, experience, and an interest in working with patients who have experienced psychosis. The service addresses the needs of people (aged 14-65) who have recently experienced a first episode of psychosis or may be at risk of developing psychosis. You will be supporting individuals and their families to talk about and understand their psychosis experiences, to cope with changes that have occurred and to promote recovery.

In your role you will provide a range of skilled mental health interventions and manage a defined caseload, assessing, planning, delivering, and evaluating care and actively contributing to groups and family work.

What some staff have to say about working in this team:

“As a new starter I have been made to feel very welcome and been well supported with lots of opportunities to develop as a clinician, a friendly, hard-working team who strive to do the best for their patients”

“We work as a well-oiled team and the support within the team is fantastic. You never feel alone with any clinical or non-clinical matter. Given the time to study extra skills like BFT and early warning signs to give patients the best person-centred care we can give. Since joining the team, I feel I am making a difference to patient’s recoveries which gives great job satisfaction”

“A job with Early Intervention is so rewarding, whilst we work with a breadth of recovery, it’s predominantly a preventative team, striving to support individuals early in their journeys and hoping to avoid serious and enduring mental illness and equip individuals with skills to know what makes them unwell and how to best manage this, building resilience, self-awareness and a quality of life the individual wants. A supportive team with patient care right at the centre”

* Flexible working, allowing you to maintain work-life balance

* Working within a supportive and valued team of Mental Health professionals
