An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Peer Activities Coordinator who has personal experience of mental health challenges to join our Inpatient Therapy Team in Enfield. Peer Workers are an integral role in the model of care we are developing. Please refer to the Peer Worker Recruitment Pack attached to this job advert which outlines Peer Working at the Trust.
The Inpatient Therapy Team provides assessment and therapy group programmes to patients on the five Adults inpatient wards Devon, Dorset, Sussex, Suffolk and Somerset Villa. The Team provides both Specialist Therapy assessments to patients and offers a needs lead, patient centred individual and group based Activity and Therapy Programme.
Clients on the inpatient wards present with acute or enduring mental health symptoms, and often have other co-existing diagnoses which may include a range of physical diagnoses. Some clients have been detained under the Mental Health Act and may need skilled support in integrating back in the community following admission to hospital.
We offer excellent opportunities for personal development through training, regular supervision and appraisals by the Team Manager. We also provide monthly peer-to-peer supervision with Peer Workers across the whole Trust and offer a supportive platform to help you develop your skills.
