Community Mental Health Rehabilitation Pathway

Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin

30 hours (part time)

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic Band 8a Clinical/Counselling Psychologist to work within the new and developing Community Mental Health Rehabilitation Pathway across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, working towards the below agreed values and vision for people with complex mental health needs who often experience multiple and interconnected challenges so require a service that provides an intensive recovery and rehabilitation approach.

That everyone has belief in me and works alongside me to live the best life I can

Is centred on my needs -not centred on my diagnosis, instilling hope, and balancing risk to maximise the best outcomes for me and my independence.

Is built on my strengths -supports my aspirations, interests and goals and recognise that these may change over time, identifying changes in my needs early to ensure timely interventions and seamless transitions

That offers proactive support- those who support me are proactive, consistent, flexible and transparent, seeking feedback and aiming to continually improve

That works together -so that those who are important to me are recognised and included, and seen as a critical part of the team around me

Local access -provided locally, not impaired by organisational boundaries and promotes collaborative working

The service, which is in its early stages of development, will work with people at an early stage of their recovery, where previously they would have been supported in an inpatient environment for an extended period of time. The service will work with people in a least restrictive way and collaborate closely with the individual, their support networks, and other professionals to offer just enough support, so that people can take the risks they need to in order to reach their potential, and live the best life they can. The service will work with people who have experienced trauma in their lives and can present with behaviours that can challenge. Therefore, there will be a need for the service to work hard to build helpful and trusting relationships, offering stability and consistency.

The post holder will be a valued part of our large psychology group in S, T & W and wider Trust. Our psychology workforce is respected and supported and we aim to ensure working with us is a positive experience. Supervision and training are essential and highly valued. We provide supervision and training to the Clinical Doctorate Programme Staffordshire University and having developed a programme for Clinical Associates in Psychology with Keele University.
