Registered Mental Health Nurse

As an RMHN you work with some of the most vulnerable people in the country.
Your patience, caring nature and ability to remain professional in difficult circumstances are exactly why we need you. Your experience supporting people with Mental Health issues, illnesses and disabilities is vital to ensuring the continued support and success of the sector.

I am working with a nationwide Healthcare provider that specialises in supporting people that require healthcare based around their mental health. Their range of services can support those with a range of different needs, including complex and acute mental illness, personality disorder, eating disorder, learning disability, and autistic spectrum disorder.
Their clinics and hospitals have dedicated wards to support and treat service users at the appropriate point in their care pathway. Step-up and step-down pathways within hospitals, regions and nationwide, ensure continuity of care as required.

The role will involve;

  • Assessing and talking to patients about their problems and discussing the best way to plan and deliver their care;
  • Building relationships with patients to encourage trust, while listening to and interpreting their needs and concerns;
  • Ensuring the correct administration of medication, including injections, and monitoring the results of treatment;
  • Responding to distressed patients in a non-threatening manner and attempting to understand the source of distress;
  • Applying 'de-escalation' techniques to help people manage their emotions and behaviour;
  • Preparing and participating in group and/or one-to-one therapy sessions, both individually and with other health professionals;
  • Providing evidence-based individual therapy, such as cognitive behaviour therapy for depression and anxiety;
  • Organising social events aimed at developing patients' social skills and helping to reduce feelings of isolation;
  • Preparing and maintaining patient records and producing care plans and risk assessments;
  • Ensuring that the legal requirements appropriate to a particular setting or group of patients are observed;
  • Working with patients' families and carers, helping to educate them and the patient about their mental health problems.

In return for your hard work and dedication to your role, you will get;

  • Teaching and CPD programmes
  • Generous study and exam leave
  • Financial support for further training and personal development
  • Active participation in clinical governance
  • Appraisal and peer supervision
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Free life insurance
  • Subsidised meals on duty
  • Comprehensive employee assistance programme and discount centre
  • Health Cash Plan
