We are looking for a qualified mental health professional (whether nursing, social work or OT in background)  to work at the heart of our multi disciplinary Community Mental Health Service, to engage with service users, and their families and carers, in a focussed and therapeutic way.

We have significant additional investment in our mental health services in Somerset as a trailblazer site for the Community Mental Health Framework, so that we can offer an excellent service to people with mental health difficulties ensuring that people can have the right help at the right time in the right place.

As part of this expansion in our provision, we are developing a comprehensive package of training and supervision for all our staff in CMHS. Regardless of where you are in your career, we are confident that we can offer opportunities for you to develop your clinical skills and knowledge. We will ensure you have all the core skills you need to confidently build relationships with our service users in order to best create and deliver an effective and personalised treatment plan with them.

Alongside these core skills, you may be interested in offering psychological interventions, from brief clinical interventions through to specific psychological therapies, such as CAT, CBT or DBT. In this case we can either enable you to utilise your existing skills in this area and/or we can offer the chance to train in these approaches. There will also be opportunities to develop skills in non medical prescribing and other areas, as appropriate to your needs and interests.

We are excited to welcome you to the team, and provide you with the support and training that will make you want to stay with us.

We are always happy to hear from potential new staff, so if you'd like to find out more before you apply, please get in touch.
