This is an exciting opportunity for a committed mental health professional to work in Early Intervention services working across Bath and North East Somerset.

The secondment post is until March 2020 and will be an opportunity for a clinician to gain experience working in Early Intervention.

The Early Intervention Team is a multi professional team working across CAMHS and Adult Mental Health Services. The post will involve using psycho social interventions and working with young people experiencing a first episode of psychosis.   The role will also involve working closely with carers and families. The service is part of an AWP Trust wide Early Intervention Service with south west and national networks following national guidance to provide a NICE Concordant EIP service.  

This is an exciting opportunity for individuals who are highly motivated to work with this service user group. We are seeking someone who is committed to team working in every sense of the word. The approach with both service users and carers will be very much based around Psychosocial Interventions and a team approach which incorporates assertive outreach. You must be an excellent communicator, have a flexible approach to your work with a good knowledge base of the principles of Early Intervention in Psychosis.

We are committed to continuous learning and development, supported by management and clinical supervision. There will be opportunities to develop your interests supported by ongoing training.
