SAMH - Support Practitioners
Post: Support Practitioners
Hours: 37.5 per week
Salary: £17,550 + sleepover & on-call payments
Practitioners provide direct support to individuals in homes and communities to improve their mental health and wellbeing. Support is focused on enabling people to build on their existing skills or develop new skills, increase their self-esteem and confidence, which in turn will encourage involvement and promote independence. This is achieved by using interpersonal and motivational skills to help an individual explore options, the possible outcomes/consequences and make an informed choice based on this.
You will be able to demonstrate good communication skills and a mature attitude together with adaptability and enthusiasm. Knowledge and experience in supporting people with mental health problems is desirable as is experience working with people who have had long term hospital admissions.
As this post will involve a variety of shift patterns including evening and weekends and may also include sleepovers and on-calls you will be flexible in the hours and shifts you are available to work.
