Mental Health Practitioner – Action for Children Location: Glasgow
How we work:
This unique secondment opportunity will afford the experience of working with 3 services – 2 in youth housing support and one in residential care, to provide direct support to young people and advice, consultation and training to staff to enable them to increase practice skills with mental health issues. Our Youth Housing Support services have residential elements housing 10 and 8 young people aged from 16-21 years. They are in Alexandria and Kirkintilloch respectively. Our Ayrshire based residential service houses 4 children/young people.
How you’ll make a difference:
You will be working in partnership with a range of peer professionals to undertake mental health assessment, offer advice, intervention and consultation services, in order to improve recognition, assessment and management of mental health difficulties. You will contribute to building strategies for positive mental health promotion within services and to individual children and young people.
What you’ll need:
You will be a registered practitioner with SSSC or HCPC with relevant employment experience in a mental health setting.  You will be required to travel between services in Ayrshire, West Dunbartonshire and East Dunbartonshire so driving is essential.
Please note: This position will be best suited to a practitioner whose company or organisation supports the work of Action for Children and who is innovative about opportunities for developing their workers through pioneering partnerships. This post is funded through an external partner, keen to see mental health support to young people making a difference to their lives.
