Job Purpose: The main emphasis of primary mental health work with children and young people is to enable community and primary care-based professionals to effectively recognise children and young people's strengths and difficulties. Primary mental health work can be delivered as either a universal or targeted provision, according to the needs of the local population.
The Primary Mental Health Worker (PMHW) will act as a locality cross-agency networker, providing early stage mental health assessment and interventions through liaison, consultation, supervision and training to primary care professionals. The PMHW will also provide direct clinical input to children, young people, and their families where this is indicated.
This approach will build on, and further enhance the skills and resources of local community and specialist services. Thereby creating a more integrated and co-ordinated service that will respond more effectively to the needs of the local population.
This post will require travel within the Highlands, with casework requirements in Lochaber, Skye and Ross Shire.
Please APPLY ONLINE. If you are unable to apply online and you wish to request an offline application pack, please contact Business Support, T: (24 hour voicemail) quoting post the reference number above.
