We are looking for SMI Outreach Wellbeing Practitioner’s for a new Community Services Mental Health Framework in B&NES, Swindon and Wiltshire.
This role will provide support to local Health services with their SMI (Serious Mental Illness) clinics. The clinics are dedicated to support the improvement in take up and quality of AHC’s by inviting community members with existing mental health conditions who have been contacted by GPs to attend a non-clinical setting to receive a comprehensive Annual Health Check (AHC) by a team of nurses. The nurses will check blood pressure, weight, BMI and complete a blood test as well as exploring the persons lifestyle and provide guidance on improving physical health. In addition to this, there is the opportunity for people to talk to a SMI Wellbeing Practitioner about their mental health and understand what support is available to them.
The SMI Wellbeing Practitioner will also provide 1:1 proactive support to encourage and enable people to attend their annual health checks, for example by providing anxiety management strategies.
