14 Mar Senior Mental Health Recovery Worker (Early Discharge) – MIND
An exciting opportunity has arisen for Mental Health Recovery Workers to support the NHS across Mid and South Essex.
In Mid and South Essex the demands on the Mental Health Services have significantly increased. As part of Mid and South Essex Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP), there is a range of provision to provide timely and appropriate responses to people in crisis to prevent escalation of mental health problems and unnecessary referrals to specialist/complex care mental health services, Accident & Emergency (A&E) and other emergency and out-of-hours services, and to provide support in the community to reduce the inpatient stay.
The Admission Prevention & Early Discharge Service, the NHS Home Treatment Teams (HTT), Crisis Resolution Service (CRS), Mental Health Liaison and Sanctuary Plus Crisis Housing will provide a joint service. The Admission Prevention element will provide extra support to people in crisis that can remain at home as an alternative to admission.
Job Title: Senior Mental Health Recovery Worker (Early Discharge)
Salary: £25,655 per annum
Hours: 37.5 hours per week, permanent
(5 over 7 day rota to cover evenings, weekends, bank holidays and outreach support during the day to meet service provision)
Following an inpatient experience in the Mental Health Unit, the Early Discharge element of the service will support people to settle back into their home environment and community.
This is a 7 day a week service between the hours of 7.00am and midnight and you will work within A&E with the Mental Health Liaison Team to support people in crisis. Your role will be to support adults experiencing emotional and mental distress in South East Essex who have been referred by Community Mental Health Team (CMHT), Primary Care Network (PCN), Home Treatment Teams (HTT), Mental Health Liaison, Crisis Response Service (CRS) or Crisis Sanctuary.
