A CBT qualification or solution focused brief therapy with experience in delivering therapeutic interventions would be advantageous for this role.

Due to expansion, a new and exciting opportunity has arisen for a Mental Wellbeing Nurse to join our experienced multi-disciplinary team, working on-site with our large corporate client in Belfast.

The role

The role of the mental wellbeing nurse is to implement and deliver an effective and efficient mental health pathway for our client. Located within the client setting (on-site medical centre) the mental wellbeing nurse is central with the delivery of timely and accurate triage decisions that underpins a wide range of wellbeing and healthcare services available to our corporate clients and their employees.

The mental wellbeing nurse is the first point of clinical contact for the majority of client employees with potential mental health issues and concerns. The triage is a comprehensive assessment that determines the most appropriate pathway of care and support such as self help tools, EAP, therapies and onward referrals.
