Mental Health Nursing

Working in healthcare is more than just a job, it’s a passion. And every member of our trust is committed to providing the very best care possible in order to transform the lives of our patients.

We’re not just passionate about our care – we’re also passionate about our staff. We’ll work with you to identify your short and long term career goals, and then provide you with the training and education opportunities you need to fulfil your potential. We also have an array of apprenticeship options, along with strong links to the University of West London, providing training placements and post graduate qualifications.

We are currently looking to talk to anyone who has an interest in mental health nursing, who is recently qualified, is looking to make their next career move, or is considering returning to work.

A career in mental health nursing offers you the chance to make a difference to people’s lives and support them in their process of recovery.  Roles are varied but are built on a foundation of developing effective relationships with patients, and their relatives or carers. 

Although mental health is your area of specialism, you’ll also get to study and develop knowledge of physical health problems and conditions. This will allow you to help people manage their wider health needs and introduce them to preventative measures to keep them well for longer.

Opportunities for a career in mental health with us are probably more varied than you realise. We offer the chance to work with children or adults, and across specialist services such as veterans, eating disorders, the criminal justice system and perinatal.

You can also choose to work in in-patient (hospital) settings, the community, and in a variety of other areas such as A&E, with the police, and with those who support the homeless.
