The role will work with patients with mental health needs registered to one of the GP practices that sit within the PCN. This role is about supporting people with moderate to serious mental health needs who often fall between the primary and secondary care gap.

You will work within a recovery and psychologically informed approach, taking a holistic view to support people’s recovery to live fulfilling lives.

 Identify, assess, contribute, maintain, provide feedback, and manage risk to ensure it is minimised.
 To navigate the ‘wider system’ which includes signposting or supporting the client to access support in relation to housing, debt advice, employment, family/relationship breakdown and domestic violence etc.
 Manage casework, documentation, and time effectively, ensuring up to date and clear record keeping in line with policies, making the best use of own supervision, reflective practice, training, and staff development.
 Deliver specialised domestic violence support to survivors.
 Maintain hope and optimism for the individual with high expectations for recovery.
 Assist the MINT Team Manager and Missing Link Partnership Manager to monitor and evaluate the service.
