Athona's Health division are currently recruiting Band 3 Mental Health Support Workers, to work with patients with severe mental health conditions.
Band 3 Mental Health Support Worker - Ealing, West London. This NHS The service is going through some changes and practitioners are needed to work with a list of cases, meeting the clients face to face to assess their mental state and establish what their current needs are, in order for the Multi-Disciplinary Team to form a plan for that client, and then for the practitioner to carry out that plan.
This team sits within a larger recovery team and works with clients who are not in crisis, but who may need some support, signposting or brief intervention before their care can be transferred back to the GP or the local primary care mental health team.
Knowledge and experience of working with people with mental health difficulties is therefore needed, although training and support will be given. The wider team is made up of psychiatrists, CPNs, psychologists, Social Workers, OTs and support workers.
There is a Primary Care mental health team, and once clients are stable in mental state there is the expectation that they would have their care transferred to the Primary Care mental health team. They will be looking for you to carry a caseload of 30+, working with very extreme mental health conditions that could sometimes be suicidal.
Knowledge and experience of working with people with severe mental health difficulties.
