Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust (BEH) provides healthcare services locally, regionally and nationally. We serve a population of 1.2 million, employ more than 3,300 staff, and operate from over 20 main sites in the community. As a multiple award winning Trust we provide mental health services for young people, adults and older people, and have a full range of child and adult community health services in Enfield. Our North London Forensic Service treats and cares for people in the criminal justice system who have mental health conditions. We also provide one of the largest eating disorders services in England, as well as drug and alcohol services, and mental health liaison services at Barnet Hospital and the North Middlesex University Hospital.

Job overview

This is an exciting opportunity for a Mental Health Nurse to join a supportive, reflective and creative Multidisciplinary Team that works with people with complex anxiety and depression. The MAP Pathway is a small, supportive and contained team of Nurses, Social Workers, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, a Family and Systemic Psychotherapist, an art psychotherapist, an Associate Mental Health Worker and an Assistant Psychologist. 

We believe in the importance of multidisciplinary working that is collaborative, respectful and integrative, with a particular focus on therapeutic interventions and trauma-informed care (as opposed to diagnostic based). We value rich and thoughtful discussion about our patients and consider their needs holistically. There is an ethos that we work with patients as a team (not individually). We aim to create nurturing and developmental MDT interventions that support people with anxiety and depression moving forward at a gradual pace that works for them.

Main duties of the job

The MAP Pathway has developed innovative ways of working, involving various integrated interventions, such as care coordination sessions, regular joint reviews, brief interventions (e.g. Behavioural Activation, Anxiety management, Agoraphobia treatments) and group interventions (4x groups).

We are looking for someone that is flexible, creative and motivated. Main duties of the job are to carry a caseload and support the multidisciplinary treatment program. Psychological models used within the pathway include Cognitive Analytic Therapy, CBT, Mindfulness and Psychodynamic.

We believe in the importance of staff development and nurturing staff professional interests. The successful applicant will be offered regular individual supervision, group supervision, monthly Team Reflective Practice and there are a variety of options for further training. There will be opportunities to be involved with therapeutic groups and individual psychological interventions
