Senior Mental Health Support Team Practitioner Band 6
Hours: Full time 37.5 hours per week, flexible to meet the needs of the service
Base: North Lincs
Rotherham Doncaster and South Humberside NHS Foundation Trust were successful in phase 1 Trailblazers to have Mental Health Support Teams (With Me in Mind) in Doncaster and Rotherham schools and colleges. North Lincolnshire joined this journey as part of wave 5. This is a very exciting opportunity to be part of the expansion of MHST’s in North Lincolnshire, implementing ‘New Ways of Working’ and extending the existing service model to more education settings within the local area. This project is underpinned by national strategies and initiatives for transforming children and young people’s mental health.
We already have one established Mental Health Support Team in several education settings across North Lincolnshire so these posts will form part of a second MHST working across the borough. We have two exciting band 6 opportunities within our North Lincolnshire team for Senior Mental Health Support Team Practitioners. We are looking to recruit practitioners who are enthusiastic, kind, compassionate and resilient. We seek practitioners from multi-disciplinary backgrounds, either with a core profession and a wide breath of mental health knowledge and experience or a Senior CWP/EMHP who can evidence supervision practice using principles of CBT to inform and develop others knowledge, skills, and practices.
Practitioners will work in both educational and health settings within North Lincolnshire to support the implementation of the MHST model. The successful candidates will integrate into our already well-established mental health support team and compliment the early intervention offer within our local areas.
