Would you like to expand your skills in mental health in Carmarthenshire by providing an Approved mental Health Professional service outside of office hours? 

Already a qualified and Registered Professional eg DSW, RMN, Degree in Occupational Therapy, you will possess a Post Graduate Certificate in Approved Mental Health Professional Practice.

Effective assessment, co-ordination and risk assessment skills are fundamental to the role as is the ability to manage crisis situations and the expectations of others at times of particularly unsocial hours. 

We are keen to take opportunities to develop the service in conjunction with partner agencies so that alternatives to admission can be maximised. 

In return you can expect to join a department that is committed growing its mental health expertise and to developing new ways of working.  

You will need a basic knowledge of Welsh. Reasonable support can be provided on appointment to reach this level.

A Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS) will be requested for this post.
